bolts that hold driveshaft to rear end

Hi, I just replaced the output seal from the tansfer case and i am wondering what the bolts that hold the rear u joint to the differential with the straps need to be torqued to? I know that wjjeeps has a ton of info on our vehicles but I am not even sure what to call those little bolts with the straps. So I dont know what to torque them to. Thanks

Throw red loctite in there and your good. I haven't heard of anyone dropping a shaft yet. You'll be fine.

They're small bolts, I wouldn't expect them to be that high, so 14 sounds about right.

I didn't even loctite mine and its been years of them just being "tight-nuff".

None of us at the shop would ever torque them. Tighten by hand with a standard ratchet and call it a day.

14 ft-lbs and blue loctite. Dont forget to clean the old threadlock out of the threads.
