My choice would be anti sieze. I used wheel bearing grease on the threads and the shank. Torqued as per FSM 30 ft/lbs.

Mine had minor rust when removed. I cleaned the the frame nuts with a bore brusj stuck in a drill, cleaned the bolts on a bench grinder wire wheel. Treated for rust painted the bolt heads. Seems fine.

Torque at 30? Mine had to have been at 90 foot lbs! 30 seems kinda light.

Torque from the FSM 30 ft/lbs. I know a lot of stuff on my Jeep is wrenched on so hard it is almost impossible to get off. So as I went through the build I clean all the hardware and make good use of the FSM and the troque wrenches I bought. The manual doesn't say anything about anti-sieze or locker or grease. Hope this all helps you decide whats right for your Jeep.
