Consider Haynes manual? $25 at most local auto parts stores.

Just Skip the Haynes manual. It's worthless compared to the official workshop manuals.The full workshop manual/ wiring manual will have every connector pin out wire size,color aconnection location and plenty more for your entire truck.

eBay!!

Some of my best purchases for the truck ever was buying the 3 piece factory repair and electrical manuals. It's about 7" worth of books. One for mechanical, one for body, one for electrical. It's not $10 pdf download but it's also not jaw droppingly expensive. If you intend to keep the truck for a long while and intend on repairing it yourself, these are 112% worth it!

Search terms "2008 ford ranger workshop manual" or something similar. Below is a listing I just found with all three books.

They are junk. Great for a novice....but they are blanketed full generalities on procedures and what not. I threw mine out soon as I had the genuine Ford stuff. Quickly surpassed their usefulness to me.

I agree that the Haynes manuals are not perfect. Photos not always helpful, diagrams often too small to show details, and random errors.
