    I'd like to pick up a clawfoot adapter for my torque wrench so that I can complete the "torque driveshaft bolts" maintenance item on the standard maintenance list.

    If anyone happens to know the size, it would save me crawling under the truck when I get home this afternoon with a set of wrenches to check...

    What bolts are you talking about?

    U-joint straps? Flange bolts?

    You should look them up on the online FSM's.

    Did you try calling a dealer?

    Flange bolts.

    From past experience with dealers, calling them would just result in a half hour on hold and a "bring it in for service and we'll take care of it".

    I figured someone here would know it off the top of his/her head.

    Confirmed: 14 mm bolt and nut (four of them) attaching the driveshaft flange to the diff flange.
