    I greased my 1998 4x4 last weekend. I thought that I got all the grease fittings. After reading the below thread, I realized that I missed one. It is #4 in the picture.

    Before anyone asks, I used a speciality grease that might be hard to find named Lubrication Engineers 3752 with Almasol that we use on our ultra heavy mobile cranes. That grease is great stuff! Very clingy and last for a long time. But, almost any grease is better than no grease! My second choice for grease would have been Mobil 1 synthetic grease that you can buy at most parts stores.

    Drive line is smooth as silk! No vibrations!

    I hope this helps someone out

    I use Green Grease. It works pretty well. My grease zerks are on the ends of the u-joints, not in the middle but it is very similar.

    I am sure a lot of people miss that zerk. It doesn't always show up and sometimes it can be covered with grease or dirt.

    I hate that one. Even when you find it, its hard to be sure the grease is actually going into it. Next time ill do it first, because last time the grease that didn't make it into zerks 3 and 5 made it impossible for me to tell if the gun was getting grease into zerks 4 or not.
