JK Grease Fittings?

I recently traded for a 2010 JKU and this morning I crawled under to inspect the front end and noticed the absence of grease fittings. I'm old school but I do realize thats not always a good thing, do you Guys add grease fittings or are they meant to be left alone?

sealed bearings in modern cars, so no zerks. No maintenance. still wear out though, so it is stupid.

Yup, no grease fittings, so just leave them be. Itís been that way for many years now. Changing you engine oil is about all thatís left concerning that type of maintenance anymore.

After you replace all them forever joints, then you get zerks. since my lift and a plethora of drive line parts I now have zerks about anywhere you look. I had to replace my grease guns hose and end. Guess it was out of work to long. Funny thing is Jeep is 3 months old and I have a stack of OEM parts, soon I may have enough to build another Jeep

YUP, I've got ZERKs on my '08 JKUR, Ball joints and LCAs, haven't blown any Universals yet--so they're still stockers !

Stupid, but kinda gives you a more "intimate", connection with your jeep !

We all know how Jeepers think, "If it ain't broke, modify it!"
