Default Trying to find a Chilton/Haynes manual at reasonable price

I am wondering if anyone knows where I can find a Chilton/Haynes manual for a 97 Ranger. So far I have found one at O'Reilly's but it is $25, would like to find one for less if I can.

If you are looking to go cheaper.

Most libraries carry repair manuals and it only costs .5 to .15 cents to copy the pages you need.

It is nice to have a manual on hand though. I bought one of mine about 10 years ago from Fleet Farm for about 17 bucks.

i have bought a lot of books of of amazon.......you should be able to find one fo rless than $15 delivered.....they come and go......I have bought haynes manuals for $4.99 including shipping but they are mostly for older vehicles ie. pre 92.....

Also don't forget that you just about always can get 20-30% off of your parts from advanced auto by ordering them online and then picking them up at the store........it works great. it saves you time dealing with the dopes at the store....you just go pick it up and pay them.....I bought a perfection clutch, pilot bearing, pressure plate and slave from there and paid $167.........I saved $50.......the PP actually was a LUK........
