Installing my replacement front yoke on my transfer case this weekend to measure for my new driveshaft. Seems simple enough but I can't for the life of me get a grip on the torque spec. It seems to be different depending on where you look. Anyone have a service manual to get the Jeep recommendation?

My 2014 Factory Service Manual shows a different torque for the nut depending upon which transfer case you have;


The NV241 GenII with 2.72:1 low range is 110 ft-lbs.
The (Rubicon) NV241 OR with 4:1 low range is 130 to 200 ft-lbs

I have the rubicon transfer case so i guess 160 is just picking a middle ground torque setting. I really hate ranges like that. What determines where in the range you should be?

When you see a range like that (130 to 200 ft/lbs) I take that to mean that the specific torque value is not critical, that is just needs to be tight.
I have a non-Rubicon and I also used the Adams Jeep value of 160 ft/lbs. No problems yet.
