    My 2017 has none. I think they changed sometime during the 2017 model year. On the rear.

    Interesting thanks for posting, I haven't looked yet since I only have just over 2000 miles but I'd assume no 2019 has zerks?

    I was just under there adding a carrier bearing drop kit and didn’t see any zerks on my 2019 CM TRD Sport.

    Curious about this as well. I have a 2019 CM 4x4. Do 2019 and 2020 not have zerks?

    I've read that you shouldn't mix 2 separate grease types. I'm not sure what is in my u joints now (183k miles). Should I remove and clean all the old grease out of my u joints and use the grease I have on hand? I have a few tubes of Schaeffer 238 ngli#2

    I had an incident on my first gen. I greased the slip yoke(on the rear for first gen) and didn't realize there can be too much. I eventually undid the zerk to relieve pressure and the shaft slipped back to where it's supposed to be. Too much pressure there will wreck your carrier bearing. :oops:

    Interesting to hear there are no zerks in the most recent years of production. My manual still says to check/lube them every service.

    I'm late to the party, my 2017 SR5 Crewmax doesn't have any zerks on the rear drive shaft. None on the yokes or u joint body, I checked all three u joints. I haven't checked my front shaft yet. My manual also says to lube the shaft every 30k.

    My 2016 has 3 on the rear drive shaft, none on the front. Interesting how many variations there are out there.
