huh? That's funny I was taught:

"Tighten 'till it feels funny, then back off 1/4 turn."

I was also taught:

"yeah but a crossed thread is a TIGHT thread!"

I was taught similarly that cross-threaded is tighter than lock-tite.

Love this forum - I needed torque spec and here it was. Off to go break bolts.....

Bolt on the far right was from front ARB mount. Farily degraded. Middle was from rear hitch. Good shape. Left is new from AAA Metric. $.98 M12 x 1.25 X 60mm

So far rear ARB mount bolt through tow point will not come out.
