    2"CB shackles, bushings and 1 shim, lockerdown console vault, rear folding seat back mod, snugtop shell with opening side windows, 46g fuel tank, SDHQ sliders and hidden winch, Decked Drawers, Alcan leaf springs and got rid of the interior chrome
    I guess it depends on which skid. On my truck i do have to remove the transfer case skid to access the zerk at the end of the drive shaft.

    Note: This post is in Gen1 forums and you drive a Gen2 per your signature. Some info here may not apply. But still:

    Chassis lube - hands-down, Valvoline NLGI 2 synthetic w/Moly additive (Valvoline part#: VV985). It's good for everything on the drivetrain and under $10/tube. If you're 4WD, when you get to doing the slip yoke (see #B here), if yours has never been done before, it may seem like it's not taking any grease. Before you even try, read this for instructions on how to handle that one specific zerk, it's an oddball, threw me for a loop! On some of the front diff zerks, swapping to a side-load fitting like this may help:
