They may have changed the drive shafts between years. But the '13 for sure has one in every u-joint. I usually take my skids off every 10-15 hours and thats how I grease them. to me its the easiest. no plastics to take off on the inside.

Hmm never thought of taking off skid plates, how hard was that? Sounds like it would be equivalent to taking off plastics and dealing with those bastard push pins haha...I found 9, and I do have a 2012 maybe they added one to 13 lol

Skids are a piece of cake compared to the plastics.

Here's a pic of the u-joint in this pic on the right side of the photo there's a grease fitting in it and on the outlet of your gear box that feeds to your rear differential

I've got a 2012 X and there are 10. I get them just about any time the plastics are out which is 10-15 hrs. of run time. Often use a needle tip to get into the tight ones.

You have the RPM external oil filter and cooler, was it worth the effort and what do you like or not about it, I am thinking that and synthetic oil at 100 hours is a good move.


What oil filter brand do you use?
