    What's the best way to get setup for greasing the zerk fittings as far as being able to spin the drive-shaft with your hands to gain access to the zerks with the grease gun. Does the truck need to be in neutral and the wheels off the ground?

    You are way over thinking this.

    If you can't access the zerks when you crawl under the truck, move the truck under its own power a few inches until you can - you'll quickly figure it out. As for the front, leave the 4wd disengaged so you can spin the drive shaft by hand.
