Chilton Manual Question

After a couple years overseas, I am getting back into Grand Wagoneers, I just bought an 89.

My question is about the right Chilton Manual. I was looking on eBay and see them for Cherokee, Comanche, and Wagoneer. Are all three really that similar that one manual covers them or am I missing something? I was expecting to see a manual for just the GW. TIA.

Chilton and Haynes manuals are all crap. They all cover(try) too many years which means none are covered in specifics. Save your money for a factory TSM for your specific year. Yeah lot more expensive but if you do your own work it'll be the best money you ever spend on your FSJ.

Any recommendations for a TSM source? I am not seeing any on eBay or Amazon.

You can buy a hard copy if you want ... http://www.bjsoffroad.com/1989-Jeep-Factory-Service-Manual_p_1059.html

Or take the PDF to your local print store (FedEx?) and ask them to print and bind it for you.
