The Jeep began in World War II with vehicles such as the Willys MB, Jeep GPW, and Bantam.
After the war, Willys eventually walked away with the rights to the word Jeep. Willys used this name for its successor to the military MB, designating the model as a CJ, which stood for Civilian Jeep. Willys also used the Jeep name on pickup trucks, station wagons, and the Jeepster. Willys made shop manuals for these vehicles, usually covering a few years and models at a time. Later in the 1950s and 1960s, Willys and its successor Kaiser Jeep made the same style of repair manuals for those vehicles as well as models such as the DJ, FC, Gladiator, Grand Wagoneer, and Wagoneer.
From 1972 to 1983, AMC made Jeep service manuals in a style similar to AMC car manuals, with a different manual for each year.
For 1984-1988, AMC switched Jeep to a multiple shop manual format. These books cover models like CJ-7, Scrambler, Wrangler, Cherokee, Grand Cherokee, Grand Wagoneer, Comanche, and J-series Pickups. The manuals include:
· Mechanical Repair
· Body Repair
· Electrical Troubleshooting
· Wiring Diagrams
· Overhaul Manuals. Overhaul manuals cover rebuilding of major components like the engine, transmission, transfer case, and fuel injection. Faxon Auto Literature sells convenient combination overhaul manuals that include all the overhaul manuals available for a particular vehicle.
In 1989, when Chrysler Corporation took over Jeep, Chrysler returned the manuals to a simpler format in which all repairs were in one set of books. Initially all Jeeps were covered in one year-specific set of books, and then later Chrysler made a set for each model. This format remained until 2008. Beginning with 2009, Jeep manuals became available on CD only because Chrysler stopped making paper books. This is true for all recent model Jeeps like Liberty, Patriot, Compass, Wrangler, and Grand Cherokee.
