Body bolt torque

Hi guys,

I bought a 94 Wrangler one year ago and have spent that time working on most everything. I finally bought new tires (31x10.5x15") and wheels (15"x9"), which Discount Tire told me would not rub. Naturally, they did, but not on the highway, only when we go 4-wheeling in the mountains. So now, I bought a kit from Quadratec to raise the body 2 inches, then I ordered a new bushing kit to replace the rotted bushings I found(don't even ask how many bolts I broke trying to take it apart!).

What I need to know is this: what is the torque number I should use to install the 11 bolts from the frame to the body. Both kits say to use the manufacturer's number, but my Chilton's doesn't list that value. Anybody know? We're going to Moab on Veteran's Day weekend and I'm trying to get it done in time. Thanks

I got this from a fellow on another forum.

"All bushing bolts for Frame-to-Body get torqued to 24ft/lbs."

This for CJ7, but the consensus is snug but not too tight. I would
think CJ7 bolt torque would be same as YJ.
