I just got my powerwagon and decided to change the fluids myself. changed engine oil, front and rear diff, and was wondering how many greese zerts are on the front of the truck and where they are. i only was able to find two zerts on the steering components, are there more??

Thanks

This fitting is hard to find even with photos.....but it is there.....also it may help to clean the inside area of the joint if there is dirt or mud there....get a bright flashlight or drop light and go looking for it....

On the PW, you will need to remove the transfer case rockgard to get to the front driveshaft fitting.

Just greased my front shaft again yesterday. I usually jack up the drivers front wheel, and put the trans in neutral. This way you can spin the drive shaft until it's in the best position for greasing. I've never removed the skid plates before, but it would probably make it easier.

I was lookin but still couldn't find it. could it be that it has never been greased cause many dealers dont know about it and i bought my truck used it may be rusted over ?? looked for about 10 min. that worked nicely jacing up the driver tire.

I guess ill try to keep lookin its kinda tight in there lol

Yep- not required to remove anything... You just need the right tools.

DJM1 that is a great idea about sticking a pic in the glovebox. I get lifetime oil changes and the dealer always gives me the run around about the front end. Now I can show them the picture. :rck:

Finally found it. I used marker to mark the driveshaft and put arrows to where it is. What a piece of shit grease fitting. I think I got more grease on me then in the hole. Not to mention all the rust and dirt in my eyes :crazy:

Good photo ...that should help others a lot.....I like the idea of paint or marking the area.....will do that on mine next service....and you are right about getting more grease on your hands than in the fitting.....
