Rear Differential Bolts Torque

Does anyone know the proper torque for the bolts holding on the rear differential cover of a KK?

Taking off the cover to change the fluid is going to make enough mess - don't need it leaking later...

I'm not sure if it's any different from the KJ, because they use 30 ft/lb. I'm sure one of the master KJ/KK people will swing through with better insight..

30 ft/lbs is correct.
