    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    It covers the important stuff
    August 27, 2014
    I have a Ram Van 3500 and it has information about the 3500 even though the title and description don't list it. It's a Chilton manual not a Chrysler manual so much of the information is fairly general in nature.
    Pros:
    It tells me what I need to know.
    Cons:
    Some sections are not vehicle specific.
