    I got a gift certificate to Amazon.com for participating in some software development research. I was wondering if there are any good books they have that CK5 members would recommend I blow the money on?

    Jim Allens' 4-Wheeler's Bible
    I have had this book for many years and I find a great amount of information in it. Everything from great calculations to winching techniques. Definitely worth the money! (IMO)

    I took a look at that book (gotta love that See What's Inside feature), looks good. Especially for $20! Any other suggestions? I can buy a few books.

    I heard that Chassis and Suspension book was just pretty much an instruction manual for installing a lift kit, and not much of really learning about chassis and suspension. I think I already have the metal fabricator's book. :D

    Chevy and GMC Perfromance Handbook, for sure. I've found it to be a collection of all the info I've gained from reading all the 4 wheel mags for the past 15 years. Great stuff, tons of reference info, etc. Also, find a copy of the standard Catalog of 4x4's, has specs and options for every Chevy 4x4 up to the 2000's

    $50. Not bad for 20 minutes of questions.

    Yeah, I just figure it's a good excuse to get some books and learn something new. Books are always those kinds of things I see and go "Oooh, I'll have to pick that up sometime" and never do. Although I seem to have an awful lot of them :dunno:
