    As the title states.....

    I have heard many stories to where certain grease guns are to large to fit in the tiny spaces to grease some of the zerk fittings on these trucks. As a remedy, many have filed down the tip to allow clearance. Are there any grease guns that can be purchased that are slim enough to not have to modify?

    I've used lock&lube greasers for some time. I had to grind the diameter of a grease tip to fit tight areas that normal grease tips won't fit to reach the zerk fitting.

    I have a zerk on my old Jeep that I absolutely can’t get the gun on it. This adapter works great!

    It does work great! And it's relatively cheap.

    ^^This. They’re cheap (got mine for Less than $10 bucks) work well, and instead of screwing/unscrewing to your grease gun hose you can put a Zerk on the threaded end for speed and less mess.....

    I have the cheap harbor freight mini one. Works great, just get a quality mini tube to put in it.
