Default lug nut torque

how tight should the lugs be on a 06-1500 4x4 with the 20" tires?

when it's in the air, get them snug (bottom out a bit, then maybe a little more).

drop vehicle, give it another forearm twist with a 4-way...so like, and nother 1/3-1/2 turn. nothing more is needed.

book on a 2500 4X4 says 135 lbs. IMHO anywhere between 100 and 135 is plenty!!![sm=icon_rtfm.gif][sm=icon_rtfm.gif]

On a 1500, bring em down in the every other lug sequence to around 70lbs, then do it again to 110lbs.

The sequence and amount of tq is important because it will prevent warping the rotors.
