Are we sure about this? I found 159 lbs.

Also the TSB said 199 lbs.

266 seems a bit high. That's Newton Meters. Which is actually about 199 lbs.

199 ft/lbs according to 2011 shop manual. Also only supposed to use the nut once. When I took my diff out for new gears, I used same nut with blue loctite. Checked it once since and still at 199 ft/lbs.

Nice.

I even said in the video 199 and then changed it after talking to someone. Bad thing is I can't remember who I talked to.

199 lbs sounds right. I'm torqueing axels today on my 12 bolt Hammerhead set up.
