I am not sure but I think the rear axle nut is what takes the most torque but I am not where I can check the specs.

I currently have an inch lb. torque wrench and a lower end ft.lb. wrench but still need a larger Ft.lb. wrench to round out my needs.

I bought the snap-on techangle. I use it at work and at home. I like that I don't have to set it back to zero. Also the best thing about it is when removing. I can check the removal torque of a bolt and see where it's at then when torquing down just get the same removal torque.

You can find them on www.tooltopia.com at a lot less than the tool trucks.
Just got this for Christmas today and have already used it. I like it a lot!!

And I might be mistaken, but I thought I made have heard they make them for snap on, and snap on sells them under their name.
