torque range for receiver bolts

I put a Class III receiver on my pickup the other day but at the time I did not have a torque wrench and have lost the instructions. I tightened up the bolts snug. I now have a torque wrench and wondered what the torque value would be for those four bolts. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

IIRC the specs were between 100-120 for my ford hitch I had on my 01.....which lines up with the 1/2" grade 8 specs listed on the link provided above.

It's not really a torque sensitive (less than max) application, (if anything you probably want them close to max) so I'd use the chart provided as a max value.
