    Remember the front shafts can be turned by hand. Make sure the truck is in 2WD, turn the shaft in front of the xfer case and you should see them.

    The 1st one above the heat shield nearest the xfer case sucks....

    I usually give a squirt of grease every oil change. Book says 15,000 miles.

    Yeah, I do mine every oil change too. The front usually doesn't need much, but the rear takes a bit more. Truck seems to drive a little smoother after too.

    They say they do. I put wax over the zerks and took my truck in one time, and when finished, I found the wax still there. They said I didnt have any grease zerks, so I had to drag the "Tech" under my truck and pont them out. You may want to make it clear you want it done, as you are paying for it anyway.

    My Prerunner is sealed. I had a 2000 4x4, and I have 3 other 4x4's and a 6x6, all of which have grease zerks.
