There shouldnt be any bolts loose in your suspension IMO. If your suspension feels "loose" its most likely bushings and worn out components. Nothing you can just tighten up.

To answer your question, NO to fully tighten, the weight of the vehicle should be on the ground and the suspension.

I assume he means to check tightness as everything says to recheck every 3000 miles.
Also, agreed, do it with the jeep on the ground.
