You're sure? I haven't looked it up for the Commander, every other Chrysler vehicle I've done it more like 130 Ft-Lbs.

At first it seemed in the title of the post he was talking about lug nuts, in the post he made it clear it was the bug nut holding the axle/drivershaft into the hub. You didn't confuse the figure with torque for lug nuts?

d5osorda I'd confirmed that figure, I don't know for sure, but it seems low to me, I worry the poster was confused by your terms in the title and gave you the wrong figure.

If it is actually 100ft-lbs, my apologies, but then the Commander would have a lower torque than most vehicles for this nut.

Thanks, sorry to doubt you jasmat, 100ft-lbs is lower than many smaller vehicles out there, but you can't argue with the figures in the book.

And that is why I thought they may have been confusing the two, but Gulf550 confirmed it, its in the book, the big Axle Nut is the same torque as the lug nuts.

No worries, I have had mine apart quite a few times for maintenance, when he asked about the 35MM, I knew what he was talking about. Thanks though.
