It's no Helms, but at $25, it's not bad. I've got one. In fact, I've got several manuals from these guys for pennies compared to even Haynes and Chiltons. If you don't mind having to use a laptop or the occasional printing.

Oh yeah. Like Hook'em said. Basically Helms > Ebay DVD. However, it is super cheap and enough for most...at least me.

i have a helms for my truck, its 5 phonebook sized manuals that cover every part of the truck, and the pages are even phonebook thickness, so imagine say.....7000+ pages about the 2005 Silverado/Sierra/Denali 1500/2500/3500 and every motor, trans, and option for that year

for $150 bucks its an investment but its a good one if youre a DIYer

Can you post the number of that Haynes manual? I've got a 99-06 Silverado, but it only covers up to 6.0L on the 2500+

I've got a 2006 Savana 3500 D-max I'm using as a donor vehicle. The engine/trans are going in a 4x4 project. The van was involved in a front-end collision resulting in damage to some intake parts, as well as the fuse box under the hood. For the motor swap, I'll need a good service manual with electrical diagrams to thin out the electrical harness of anything not related to the engine electronics. Do these E-bay CD's have good elecrical diagrams, or am I better off shelling out the $130 for the Haynes?
