Default where is all the grease fittings?

i crawled under the truck for the first time this weekend. where the hell are all the grease fittings? i guess i need to wait for the components to fail before i can replace them with ones i can grease. it reminds me of my old 1990 dodge that only had grease fittings for the tierod ends & pittman arm. i eventually added them as i replaced the ball joints, universals ect. just needed to vent.

Nope, there are none, Ive been there too. I guess you can drill and tap and add fittings though. My front end squeeks too a bit.

Grease fittings makes it hard on parts suppliers. After all, if things don't wear out, you can't sell replacements!

i have added grease fitting in the past to new components, the only trouble with existing components on the truck you will push metal shavings through.
