Crossmember torque

Ok I've search and found a couple different answers and I just want to clarify. On an 04 the torque specs for the 6 bolts holding the transmission skid plate/crossmember is 55ft lbs, and and the transmission mount itself, 4 bolts is 45 ft lbs, is this info correct?

The skid plate value looks right but the trans mount value looks high. Based on the size of the bolts I think it's closer to the low to mid 20's.

The pdf I have for the 2006 shows 26 ft. lbs. I wouldn't go any higher than that.

Get them tight and call 'er good. This isn't one of those areas where torque spec is critical.

Just did this yesterday on my 2004... all research I've found shows 55 ft lbs for cross members and 21 ft lbs for the transmission mount bolts.
(Though I couldn't find the FSM for 2004)
