1. Oil Can Points.
Lubricate all oil can points every
3,000 mi (4,827 km), or semi-
annually, whichever occurs first. Use
seasonal grade OE on hood hinges,
tailgate hinges, door hinges, door
handles, transfer case shift linkage,
accelerator linkage, transmission shift
linkage, heater control shutoff valve
lever and pin, and heater control
knob and plunger. Lubricate cargo
shell door front paddle lock, rear wire
handle lock and cargo shell door
latches with PL-S, (M996, M996A1,
M1025, M1025A1, M1025A2, M1026,
M1026A1, M1036, M1043, M1043A1,
M1043A2, M1044, M1044A1, M1045,
M1045A1, M1045A2, M1046, and
2. Winch Wire Rope.
Wear leather gloves when
handling winch wire rope. Do
not handle wire rope with
bare hands. Broken wires
After each use, clean and lubricate
winch wire rope. Clean entire wire
rope with wire brush. Do not lubri-
cate winch wire rope in dry, dusty
conditions. Perform winch wire rope
cleaning and lubrication every 3,000
mi (4,827 km) or semiannually,
whichever occurs first, when wire
rope is not used.
Every 3,000 mi (4,827 km), or semi-
annually, whichever occurs first,
clean pintle with wire bush and
lubricate rear plate fitting with
seasonal grade OE.
4. Steering System.
Do not over lubricate tie rod
ends and upper and lower ball
joints. One or two shots is
adequate. Excessive lubrica-
tion will result in the boot
rupturing. Observe the boot
during lubrication: a seeping
condition indicates adequate
lubrication; expansion of the
boot indicates over lubrication.
Lubricate front propeller shaft,
steering column, U-joints, slip yokes,
tie rods, upper and lower ball joints,
intermediate steering shafts, and
idler arm with GAA every 3,000 mi
(4,827 km), or semiannually,
whichever comes first.
5. Power Steering Reservoir.
Use Dexron® II or Dexron® III
for filling power steering
reservoir. Failure to use
Dexron® II or Dexron® III will
cause damage to power
Check the fluid level in the power
steering reservoir and adjust level as
necessary. Level must be above
ADD mark. Fluid does not require
