Question Best Service Manual?

OK, I' sure this has probably been brought up in the past, but what do you find to be the best service manual out there for our LH's?

The cheaper ones you can get at the local auto stores? Haynes? Chilton? AllData?

The pricey, yet specific to your vehicle manual?
Factory Service Manual (FSM)?

I notice both Haynes and Chilton only cover 98-03 omitting any 04 models of the LH. I don't think this is a big issue as 04s should all be the same as the 03 year.

I have AllData, OnDemand 5 and the factory sevice manual, but I prefer to use OnDemand 5 or factory service manual.

Forget Haynes

I have a Haynes for my '96 and it is pretty worthless. You can find torques for bolts, capacities, a few other things that are helpful, but it just isn't detailed enough for most things you'd want to do. I don't care for instructions that say "remove the----" without telling you how.

You could either pay out the a$$ for one at the stealership, or you could buy one on Flea Bay.
