    Any brand-name 80-90W grease is sufficient.

    Anything will work with u-joints but you need to use a molybdenum-disulfide grease in the slip yoke, like what @Comatose posted.

    OME and worth every penny.
    use the moly ( not just chassis grease) in the u-joints also, it's more gooder for needle bearings.

    Not a vote for or against Red & Tacky, I'm just not as familiar with it.

    I bought some high pressure wheel bearing grease (1# tub) for our trailers a few weeks ago, expecting it to be blue or greyish and it looks to be just a tub of R&T, we'll see if it holds up as well on bearings (I really don't see why not).
