Prices for Factory Service Manuals ??

Since the purchase of my '00 I have been keeping my eyes open for a FSM for the Ranger... since the only thing I have right now is a CD that is SO VAGUE in its description of installation and removal of components.....
Picked up the Factory Service Manual set of 2 books for the 2000 Ranger on Ebay yesterday for $69.95......
I have read that the going price for the FSM is approximately $110.....

I already have the E&VTech Manual; so I now have two !!!!
Anyone interested in the extra E&V Tech Manual for a 2000 Ranger ????
Make an offer !!!

OR 4x4

The two volume set costs $150~160 new.
$60~90 is about what they go for used on eBay, so I think you got a good deal.

Received the manuals last night in the mail....
Already used them for troubleshooting the RF problem on my 11 meter radio.
Surprised at the detail of information provided... Much more step by step troubleshooting...than the one I have for my Jeep Cherokee.

From what the seller states in his advertisement; it SOUNDS like a good deal, but have had no experience with the DVD version; so I really can't say one way or another.
My experience with the CD version is that most of the information is common sense with a little technical information....
The paper manuals have more information than I will use, but it is nice to have them when you need it !!!!
