2010 JK Oil Drain Plug Torque?

After contacting dealerships and Jeep ... no one can tell me the proper torque that should be applied to the drain plug... can anyone help me with this? It would be nice to avoid the "stripped thread" topic...

Thanks

Finger tighten it then give it an extra quarter turn. Works for me all the time.

08 Jeep X Unlimited w/4" Rancho Sport lift rolling on 37-12.5-17 NITTO trail grapplers.

06 Jeep Rubicon w/5.5" Teraflex long arm + 1" body lift rolling on 35-12.5-17 BFG KM2 on 7031 ProComp Alloys

RogerG has the same technique that I use
There is a complete torque chart in the F.A.Q. last pages.
This could be the one thing that is not listed
Take a look

edit: it's in there, oil drain plug 20 ft. lbs.
