(: Installing River Raider Skids on 2012 and have a torque question :)

Will soon be installing the full river raider skid system in aluminum and I see the instructions call for mounting the oil skid to the engine motor mounts. Does anyone know what the proper torque numbers are when tightening them back up? Much appreciated.

I had to weld tabs to the nuts (or buy some with tabs on them) going inside the frame rails... Makes it easy to tighten them and remove them. Saves a couple hours for maladroits like myself in trying to fish a wrench in to hold them. Also, stainless bolts to aluminium to steel makes for an almost impossible removal if you need to get to anything under the skids. I used anti sieze last time.
(things rror doesn't tell you).

I am a troll. Do not take my advice. It isn't going to help.
