Books on how to build

My girlfriend wants to start building a mudbog/trail truck(The project would be a Ford, probably a F-250 'cause it already has a stout rear end, good motor and tranny and wide availability of parts)

I believe with the right books and the little knowledge we both have and the knowledge of her father(ex mechanic and body man) than we could start building something soon and be finished in a couple of years. Hopefully our knowledge will progress with time.

We've both taught our self how to do things before through books and I think we can do this through the use of a good book and others knowledge.

Obviously the PBB has an amazing wealth of knowledge, and I have found some good websites through the search. But does anyone know of any good basically how to build a car book? I already have a haynes for my Bronco which covers f-250's.

I agree, but I like to be able to read and see pictures of someone mating a t-case to a tranny and stuff like that.

Not knocking the amazing wealth of knowledge here, just it'd be a PITA to post every time I had a question when I could just open a book and look at the page saying how to do it.

I'm guessing the haynes manual is gonna be the best for most of the stuff but for the big stuff I will come here
Not bashing, but the SEARCH button is a lot better than a haynes manual. I have three or four chiltons/haynes/jeep bible/ etc... and use them. They are great at describing some freaken tool that you need to remove something you have never heard of. Read the book to help you identify what you are doing, then get on line and find out how to do it.

Best of luck with your rig.
