    How much would it cost you to "copy" each page of your truck's manuals? Our take them in and have them re-printed? (Remember to figure in the cost of quality paper, not copy machine paper, and the heavier covers, and having them collated and bound.)

      Agree. Prices of original manuals on ebay are all over the place. And there are/were often some real bargains at Intl Meets, York, etc.
