Go to your local autozone and buy a greasegun and some grease. You will probably need to buy a flexible hose also. Just press the end of the gun onto the zirk fittings until it kinda locks into place. Then just pump them full of grease. You will see the rubber donuts start to bulge out.

Get a grease gun and grease at your local auto parts store. Don't bother with the mini grease gun, get the full sized one. There are six grease fittings on the front of your jeep, you should grease them every time you change the oil. Don't over fill the grease fittings otherwise you'll burst the rubber grease housing.

Grease gun with a tube of chassis grease. The grease zerks are all on the front - top ball joints , tie-rod ends etc. Look under there and you will see them. There's seven I think. Pretty easy job but messy.
