    A friend of mine ordered some factory universals for a 05 2500 Dodge a few days back. They came with zirks for a grease gun... I have noticed the aftermarket ones seem to fit a little snug and with tollerances which are out of wack, these installed perfectly.

    Who knows Dodge might be on the right track for a change. One thing that is for sure the greasable one will last much longer than the old pre greased style for plowing!!!

    Lets hope

    I agree! I hate dealing with non-greasable parts, especially u-joints. With the possible temperatures parts are reaching, who knows why they don't come with zerks from the factory.

    I replace a set of front u joints every year and I went to the "Extreme Duty" grease-ables and it just doesnt matter still go through a set a year!

    Get some Spicer Triple Sealed greasable units and you'll get a few years out of them. They are made for offroading/mud/water and will resist water entry better than the rest (hence the triple seal). Best you can get and they are about $40 each. Not bad if you ask me.

    Those are mopar Value line U-Joints. The factory joints are still not greasable and twice the price of Value Line joints
