rear end cover

hey guys i got a 01 xlt 4.0 4wd and i replaced the gasket and fluid in the rear end for the fact it prob has never been done by the previous owner and i have noticed that the rear end has been leaking and iv looked in all sorts of books to find tourque specs and couldnt find any. so if anyone knows what the bolts should be tourqued down to hit me up and im also thinking of takeing the rear end cover off and rvting it and not useing the gasket. thoughts would be nice. thanks

did you use grey RTV and wait for it to settle a bit before driving it?
