I believe Ford calls for something like 150 ft lb for my '06 F250.

150 ft lbs is what Ford recommends. I just rattle the impact a bit, and haven't ever had an issue

Yea I watch the socket tighten up and hold it for another 2 seconds or so and stop. Never a problem. Gotta be careful putting them on with impacts though or you'll have fun taking them off with a lug wrench on the side of the road!
