RockAuto Literature: Bishko Shop Manuals

First I want to give a shoutout to @Mike Gs for mentioning that there is a cheap version of the service manuals on CD for sell through Rockauto. For around $20 I figured it's worth a shot. From the looks of them the cover appears to be the same content as the ones originally first published by back in the day by Helm Inc. according to Bishko. Anyway I've got a hybrid '99 late engine, early suspension so I'm trying to decide which year I should go with 1999 or 2000? I'm not sure if the 99 service manual will have early or late '99 content being that they are both technically '99 year models by the book. I'm leaning toward the 2000 manual so I for sure will have the right engine content, and might have to take a hit on my early '99 suspension There is always the option to by both, but just wanted to see if someone knows how Ford covered the early to late changes for their service manuals for the '99 models?

Glad to help-
I have the 99 and it has been very accurate for my late 99.
I just looked and it was copyright 12/97 if that helps.
If you order it does take a week or so because I think they burn copys as they are ordered.
This is a lot of great info, including dealer troubleshooting procedures. Even if you do not work on your truck you have the knowledge to know if your mechanic is bs or straight up with you.
