Can I get a verification? I thought I read somewhere it was less. Thats the Dana 35 rear, not 30. Sorry to be nitpicky.

Confusing part (from my 99 wrangler factory service manual)...

Says the "216 RBI axle" is 80 ft/lbs.

Says the "194 RBI axle"is 57 ft/lbs

Doesn't refer to either as a Dana 35, 44, etc. So maybe the 194 is the Dana 35, and the 216 is the Dana 44?

Edit: also says the "181 FBI axle" is 45ft/lbs (assume this is the Dana 30)

Sorry about the confusion!

The Present:

'04 WJ
'46 CJ2A
The Past:
'83 CJ7, '92 YJ, '00 XJ, '99 TJ, '05 TJ Rubicon (Impact Orange)

181 axle = Dana 30
194 axle = Dana 35c
216 axle = Dana 44.

The bearing caps for the Dana 35c are indeed tightened to 80 ft-lbs. Make darned sure to reinstall the bearing caps exactly as they came off... left vs. right and that the they go on facing the same direction as they came off... the end that was on top needs to be reinstalled on the top.

Okay, so I have a bit of conflicting information here.

Indeed the 194 RBI is the dana 35, 216 is a Dana 44 and so on

But,

According to Jerry, the dana 35 bearing caps need to be tightened to 80 ft-lbs, however, TJeep99 says the dana 35 (194 RVI) bearing caps are to be torqued to 57 ft-lbs.

Once again, sorry if this is redundant, but it is of critical importance that I get an accurate torque spec.

So, what is it 80 ft-lbs or 57 ft-lbs?

Thank you.

Well that's damned odd, my '97 manual definitely says 80 ft-lbs. for the 194 RBI axle's bearing cap bolts.

Here's the part of the page out of the manual just scanned...

so guess what I did.

Looks like I have to open the case again and re-torque to 80 ft-lbs.

I did do some driving, 1.7 miles just to get a feel for how the 4.11 gears handle (Im doing a 4cylinder axle swap)

Now the question is, do you think I did any damage driving with those bearing caps torqued to 57 ft-lbs?

Yeah that's nuts. I have a 2001, but the axles I put in my Jeep were from a 1997 SE model. I opened the case again today and torqued all four of the bearing cap bolts to 80 ft-lbs. Weird that there are different specs for different years. Since I have 1997 axles I just went with the spec for that year. But for future readers you may want to double check with the FSM to make sure you get the correct torque spec for your particular model year. Its not like your torquing a skid plate nut or a body mount, I feel that differential carrier bearing caps NEED to be torqued correctly to their respective specification. Sorry if I stumped any of the veterans

By the way, 4.11 gears kick it. Huge difference from 3.07. Yeah its a dana 35, but I got spare shafts and only run 31s. Jeepforum rules!!!
