Well I got out the old grease gun today to grease the front end on my 01 1500 Off Road, and there's only one regular grease fitting under there. All the other 6 or so boots don't have the regular grease fittings, they've got what looks like around a 1/2" nut with a threaded base. What's that... a weird fitting, or maybe a sealed boot? Whatever it is, it needs grease bad. The boots are empty, dry, and starting to crack. Thanks in advance for the help.

This is typical of Dodge trucks. Not many serviceable parts underneath. I just a few months ago spent $1500.00 to replace all four ball joints, tierod ends, and tracbar. Plus and alignment after all that was done. If you eventually replace any of those parts and you will if you keep the truck long enough make sure the replacement parts have the zerk fittings on them so that they can be serviced.
That is exactly what i did. Except i used the press in fittings instead of the threaded ones. There is not enough material to run threads, so i went with the press ins. They have worked very well so far.
