What's the factory trackbar torqued to?

What is the torque setting on the upper trackbar bolt on a 2005 F350? I know what the ICON one was torqued to but I need to know what it is on a factory trackbar on a factory trackbar bracket.

that particular bolt cannot be tight enough, get a 4foot breaker bar min and get it tight, its the only bolt on the truck i get as tight as possible, if its not, it will start to clunk at some point, maybe not this month or this year, but it will...

Yeah I didn't torque mine down when I put it in. I don't have a torque wrench that big. I used a 3/4" breaker bar with a 4' pipe on it and gave it everything I had. I took it off the same way so I'm pretty comfortable with it.

Just use your 3/4 set and a big bar and get it as tight as you can...you are not gonna break the bolt.
