I use a 90 degree adapter and a Milwaukee Battery grease gun its a breeze
Mine looked like that too. I went with BDSWell I was able to lube the all the zerk fittings on the chassis except one (will need a different female fitting for that one)....came across this: Common? I'm at 10k.....any better/stronger options out there?
:thumb:thumb:thumbThis is what I been using since 2014 on all the fittings. Did have to remove the plastic skid plate.
Lumax LX-1404 Silver 90 Degree Grease Coupler https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000MS5T42/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_tGF6Cb14PV501
Now that I have the kryptonite setup it's even easier
It's still some work to get to those 3 fittings but it makers it easier with the 90* coupler. Make sure the zerk fitting in the 90* coupler is tight. I have had to tighten it a couple times over the time I have had it.I'll have to look into getting that 90* coupler, the 18" hose has worked for me for years, but you do have to work around stuff that's in the way.
Those 3 that I mentioned are the hardest ones for me to get to.
If you can get the front of your truck up higher than the rear before you pull the trans drain plug, I drive mine on 6" blocks..Changed out the fuel filter this morning, fuel was clean, no issues that I could see; easy day. Once I get the 90 degree zerk fitting I'll get that last part lubed - probably next weekend. Next project will be a Transend fluid change out on the Allison with fresh filters.

Wolf,I had the same thing happen with my skid plate. I made one out of a sheet of ABS for about $50 and it works great! Strong and lite weight.
Might be a good idea if you go crawling around in the rocks..........This is another skid plate that looks very good. Curious if anyone has any experience with this.
Absolutely, but it was also finding that my OE plastic pan was already cracked around the bolt holes on a nearly new truck. I am sure it will do the job for the moment but it caused me to do some forum searches only to find that the cracking was common. A new GM plastic pan is not very expensive but it also is not going to solve the problem.Might be a good idea if you go crawling around in the rocks..........
