    I got 25000KM on my truck which is around 15500 Miles. In know that in the US the recomended time to grese the drive train is at 15000 Miles. for some reason in Canada is seems to be $32000 KM. When did you guys do it. Much appreciated

    I did it at 5k and just give everything some grease every other time I change the oil (once a year or so).

    Thanks for the quick response. I will start to do it every oil change. Any idea what a fair price not including the oil change would run. Forget the dealer.

    The advantage of DIY is that U no it's done. Quickie Lube will tell U U have no grease fittings or just do the easy ones. To get them all on a 4X4 U have 2 be able 2 turn the drive shaft 2 get access. Not something Quickie Lube would do.

    If you do your oil changes, grease everything that has a fitting. I grease whenever i go out in the mud and water. Grease is cheap. I buy it by the the case. it is cheaper than replacing parts...Get to know your truck :)

    Grab a grease gun with a flexible hose, and a piece of cardboard to lay on and DIY. Very easy to do, especially with this truck's ground clearance. There's lots of room under there while it's parked.

    All the grease points labelled in the owners manual? Or how many are there? Is there a specific brand you recommend?

    The Canadian literature specifically states EVERY 16,000 Kms - of which 32,000 kms is one of those intervals. I would grease at every oil change at a minimum.

    Deja vu?
