Tighten until the cracks in the rubber bushings look like they did before you removed them.

confusing info in service manual. no specific info given for yj,only for series 10 body which is the grand wagoneer body.
Here's what it says:
body holddown 1,3,4,5 36 ft lbs.
holdown 1 and 2 36 bft lbs
body holddown 1,3,4 55 ft lbs
body holddown2 36 ft lbs
radiator guard hold down 36 ft lbs

as I said ,it sure looks confusing
it looks like the bushings should just bulge a bit when they are correct,so you could use that as a guide

thanks

Yeah its brutal. Not too sure what to make of it. I originally tightened them to 80 ft/lbs. Way too much. So anything below 30 should suffice.
Cheers

Um....the body mount bolts are the question, not the height. Same torque.
