    For all you AZ guys who ran with us last weekend with the Canadians it is time to do maintanence on your truck. I just pulled my front driveshaft out and the slipyoke puked water when I compressed it. I think the ujoint caps have water in them too.

    It is time to check all fluids for water, repack wheel bearings, grease anything that can take grease, and get any water out of your driveshaft slipyokes. Maintanence is the key to longevity and helping minimize trail breakages. :D

    Just a reminder and heads up.

    No, it is heavily water based. I would recommend you use something with a little less water in it and more potent. Something like Jack Black, SoCo 100 proof, or for best protection Everclear. Everclear is guaranteed to make your ujoints and knee joints slide smoothly, ok just your knee joints as you hit the floor but you won't care about your ujoints anymore after that. :D
