    Yeah, it's just grease.

    Grab one of these:
    http://www.tractorsupply.com/workforce-reg-pro-heavy-duty-grease-gun-3951137

    And some of this:
    http://www.amazon.com/Mobil-Synthetic-Universal-Grease-Cartridge/dp/B00085F4JO

    Takes maybe 5 min to hit all the zerks on the rear drive shaft, and another 5-10 to do the front if you've got full skids and have to rotate it into position where you can see them. I can't remember what the maintenance interval is in the manual, but after having the slip yoke on my DS bind that one time, I just do it every 5k for good measure. I've done it twice, and there is still plenty of grease left. It doesn't take a whole lot. I'd say you could probably get at least 4-5 total applications from a tube.

    Subtext, if they ever try to charge you $55 for that. Pitch a fit.

    LOL! Well to be COMPLETELY HONEST!!! I was kind of kidding about being able to just roll over it..

    But yes I know my DROP bracket is the lowest and I realize that I don't have much more ground clearance then someone with a 3" and 33's has. No with my lift I don't get high centered on a hill as bad as someone with a 3". As in if I climb over a hill that has a steep incline and a steep drop off I am less likely to scrub my tummy. Unless of course it is WAAYYY steeper then what I should be attempting anyways!

    Yeah...That was kinda my point- but I'm actaully interested what the total difference is between my 3 in with 33's and your 6 inch w/ 35s. And I don't mind sliding on the skids I'll be installing...=)

    I've been tossing up the idea of making my own skids that will actually help support my db kit and its linkage.

    But if you really want to know the difference think about how much more lift there is with 35's then 33's.. That's the biggest difference. So if you trimmed and tucked your fenders, then stuffed 35's (like allonblack) then you would have the same ground clearance.

    It can be.. As allonblack put it, "it's not really worth it unless you really plan to off-road it"..

    Yeah. Once you see what folks do for a whole extra inch of clearance, fender cutting is pretty tame.
