Default 2003 Supercrew bearing Torque

Hey all, ive got a 2003 supercrew f150. I am in the process of replacing all the balljoints. I was curious if anyone knows the torque for the front wheel bearing nut? It is the big lock nut that threads onto the end of the cv shaft. I am assuming that it is called the wheel bearing nut? Please correct me if I am wrong. Thanks in advance.

on my 2001 2wd I torqued them to 35 pounds (?) to seat the bearings and then loosened them up. After that you just finger tighten nut and put the cotter pin back in. Keep in mind this is for my 2wd and i dont know if 4wd is different.

I appreciate the reply, however my truck is 4X4. Not sure what the spec is, but it was way tighter than that.
