Grease Nipples ?

Ok got your attention haha, I was lubing up the truck, and I only see 3 nipples along the drive shaft. Is that it? are there any on the hubs etc that I am missing?

Thanks again.

And if they are on the shaft....well then idk what to tell ya. lol

But anyway, when i greased mine i think i found 4 or 6 if i remember correctly. There should be 2 on the front shaft; one on each end, 2 on the intermediate shaft and 2 on the final shaft.

I want to say there's only 7 (for access and double cab), 1 for each u-joint, 1 on the rear shaft itself (slip yoke), and 1 in the middle piece.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

The first gens have a double cardan joint that can be greased...You might want to double check yours.

Can I just buy a standard grease gun with the fitting it comes with in order to grease all the zerks? Or do I need a special fitting?

Thanks man, I guess I pump until it oozes out? Even though that didn't sound good, that is SOP, correct?
