    No problem! Thanks to @tcBob for letting me/us host it on his site and to the original Engineers/Authors who put it together...if you've looked at some other manufacturer's FSMs or a Haynes/Chiltons - you'll know how fortunate we are to have these awesome exploded diagrams and torque details.

    I still use it almost every time I work on my truck. I have memorized at least some of the torque specs after 7 years, though! :)

    :bowdown: Amen!! It's super helpful and while I love everyone's opinion on what to torque to I feel a lot better when I see it on an actual legit diagram

    tried to find the torque spec for the bed. I took the bolts out and I hand cranked them down. Is it even on here?

    Also, trying to figure out on the diagrams what the numbers mean. Can someone explain. Im guessing thy are torque specs? If so, I dont now which number to use.

    Yeah i think ur right @DoorDing on the bed bolts.

    For example, the filler plug has a 49,500, and 36 number. What do these numbers mean?

    Those numbers are all torque specs for that filler in different units. The legend is in the box at the lower left of that image. If you’re looking for ft lbs it’s the 2nd number in the parentheses.

    Can someone verify that the UCA thru-bolt is 85 lb*ft? I’m reading this correctly? Seems kind of high for that..

    So I replaced my rear shocks and used this guide for the proper torque specs. I could get the bottom bolts no problem. The top bolts, I couldn't get the torque wrench to fit due to the angle and location of where the bolts were. So I just used a regular combination wrench. On one side as I was tightening it, I hear a pop at one point. The nut didn't seem super tight at that moment. I am not sure if a washer cracked or what it was. But beyond that, everything in view seems fine and I was able to tighten the nut a bit more until it felt pretty snug. Any thoughts as to what the "pop" could have been?

    One of the thin washers has a lip on the inside circumference that helps center everything on the frame mount. Maybe that was slightly off kilter and 'popped' into place?
