Front drive shaft torque spec?

Hi Guys,

I'm in the middle of a starter replacement on an 05 GC. I managed to get the starter off without unbolting the driveshaft, but I'm going to take it down to put in the new one.

I've been looking for the torque spec for the front driveshaft bolts. I've seen one source that says 80 ft lb. Can anyone verify that?

Thanks,

Jim Moore

PS: I hate being the guy who joins up just to ask questions. I promise if I get this thing replaced I'll do a lot "How To" to help the next guy.

Per Ye Olde FSM:

Bolts at axle pinion flange: 108 Nm (80 ft lbs)
Bolts at transfer case flange: 32 Nm (24 ft lbs)
