Question 2013 vs 2009 Service Manual

Hi, for basic items in the truck, such as brakes .. would the 2013 be the same as the 2009 ? I know that the engines and the 8spds and a few other new features will not be the same .. so is the 2009 service manual a good reference ?
or is it just too many years apart ?

I have a 2013 and my dad has a 2009 so I'll let you know when I get a chance to see his manual. We have different transmissions and mine is a 4x4 vs his 4x2 but I will see if the same information is given for the comparable systems. A few things I do know off hand though:

The A/C lines/system appear(s) beefed up slightly on the 13's (which is why a CAI from previous 4th gens won't fit without some extra effort)

The manual on the '09 is considerably thicker so it may have more info than the '13 manual

Because of the shift to electric power steering, a few things have been moved around the engine bay (I think this includes the ECM and brake assist but I can't remember-obviously there is no power steering pump)

I wound up registering for a 3 day TechAuthority account, and made my own service manual for about $30 and a few hours of my time.

Ok, Just compared the 2009 and 2013 manuals. For all of the comparable systems they state the same information. In fact, the 2009 is a bit more detailed. For example the 2013 manual just says to change the oil when the light comes on, whereas the 2009 manual recommends every 6 months, 6k miles, or when the light comes on, whichever comes first. Things like transmission fluid types are not the same since mine is an 8 speed, but for the things that are unchanged for 2013 you should be good to go.
