Chassis lubrication?

I do my own oil and filter and fuel filter changes. But in the manual it states to lubricate the zerk fittings if it has them. I see nowhere where to lubricate the chassis. And what about the u joints?

There are zerk fittings on the front axel shaft u-joints (4X4's only). You have to turn the wheels all the way to lock in one direction then rotate the shaft to find the fitting (hubs unlocked).

I too would love to see some pics of the zerk locations on the front u-joints. I found a zerk fitting on the rear axle u-joint, but there doesn't seem to be anything on the front ones.
