How about providing links to the different sources, maybe as a group we can get to the bottom of this.

Edited post to make clearer, I think faster than I can type.

74 ft/lbs then turn another 50 degrees or rotation. Yeah, those suck.
At least you can get your breaker bar and finish them off if your torque wrench will be maxed out close to that listed initial torque value :)

And x10 on the thanks Jay, nice job!

There are many differences in torque values between this (offline USB version of the service manual) and an online service manual (available via Mopar tech authority subscription). While most of the differences are withing 10%, which is not good, but usually not dangerous, some differences are on the extreme end:

For example, old offline version:
Left engine mount isolator to engine block bolts -- 41 ft lbs
Left engine mount isolator to frame nuts -- 85 ft lbs

Online version (as captured 3 months ago):
Left Engine Mount Isolator to Engine Block Bolts -- 48 ft lbs
Left Engine Mount Isolator to Frame Nuts -- 36 ft lbs

Almost 2.5 times difference for the same nut :facepalm:

If I had to make an uneducated guess, I would say those numbers are a result of several things.

1) new vehicle discovery pains
2) fat fingers - probably not

I would think as time goes on torque values will change as issues are found and the vehicle matures.

Also, over torqueing is just as bad as under torqueing.

As for the example above it appears, to me, that one number was refined and the over “mistake” was adjusted.

I do not have access to the online version to adjust my documentation but if somebody can provide the data I will update it.
