    Going to my buddy's shop tomorrow to throw on the new-to-me rear bumper.

    Is there any specific torque I need to crank those bolts to?

    I'm sure my friend knows, but I'd rather show up informed :)

    Thanks in advance

    I dont think torque is crucial to bolt on a bumper. These are big bolts so dont be scare to tight them but as long they arent not loosening with vibrations its all good. Check them after driving for a bit.

    Yeah, when I asked my buddy what's the specific torque on them, he replied, "all the way"

    Tight. Use red or blue loctite on the bolt as well. Usually bolts are rated for a maximum torque depending on size and grade. Like a grade 10, 5/8" coarse thread bolt will have a maximum torque rating listed on the manufacturer website. Just google it.
