Torque specs for head bolts?

I recently blew a head gasket and am in the process of fixing it.

I am just looking ahead and wondering what the torque specifications for the head bolts are.

i called up both Jeep and a dealer in town and both were un able to tell me.

Also just want to confirm that the head bolts are reusable and not torque to yeild.

Torque specs are: 22lbs, then 45 lbs, repeat 45 lbs, then bolt # 11 is 100 lbs and the rest are 110 lbs. I will get a diagram for you in a couple of minutes.
OK, here you go.

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

So do you only torque the 4.2L to 85 ft lbs and disregard the steps? if not why is it worded like that.

And they are not torque to yield bolts, so they are reusable.
