Does anybody know factory torque for rear bumper bracket bolts?

Installing a hitch and they supplied specifications with their 2 bolts that go into the frame (for each side -105ft lbs wow).

As part of the hitch install, the 2 bolts holding the bumper, then the three bolts that hold the bumper bracket (to the bumper and to the frame) need to be removed. The 5 factory bolts above is per side.

I just bought new craftsman clicker type 3/8" and 1/2" type wrenches at sears.

The 3/8 wrench is in "In lbs", where as the 1/2" wrench has a "Ft lbs" setting on the handle. I tried some conversion on the 3/8 inch lb wrench (of .12) because the hitch hardware bolts were "105 Ft lbs" but it gave me an unreasonable setting so I just found the right socket for the 1/2" (ft lb) wrench. Hopefully the inch lb wrench will serve more useable some other time.

Anyway, hopefully the new tools will help in the future but for now I need the factory Toyota torque for the 3 bumper bracket to frame bolts and 2 bumper bracket to bumper bolts if anybody knows. At this time it's all mounted, the bumper needs to be lined up straight and then all bolts torqued down,.

Thanks

This is from the manual....imagine it's the bolts you're talking about:

INSTALL REAR BUMPER PLATE LH
(a) Engage the claw and install the bumper plate.
(b) Install the 2 nuts.
Torque: 7.0 N*m (70 kgf*cm, 62 in.*lbf)

Bracket to frame 67
Bracket to bumper reinforcement bar 48.
All values in foot-pounds.
I'd share the breakdown illustration, but it's hard to do with this POS android!

This is for the 12mm bolts that hold the little sheetmetal brackets in the facebar

Ahh, I see, this is the part then:

(a) w/ Towing hitch:
(1) Engage the 2 pins and remove the rear bumper
bar.
(2) Tighten the 8 bolts.
Torque: 90 N*m (920 kgf*cm, 67 ft.*lbf)
(3) Connect the 2 No. 3 wire frame connectors.

Perfect

Thank you guys!

I'll use the new 1/2" craftsman clicker toque wrench right now.

The rear bumper is not real alignment friendly, seems as even though all bolts are loose it has two positions (tilted up and in or down and out). When tugging to get a happy medium and keep gap between fender consistent the bumper jumps a notch and is awkwardly positioned. I'm starting to wonder if this has something to do with the plastic pin in the bumper bracket.
