Grease points

I was looking to go out and get some grease into some of the spots that generally need lubrication. I got under my rig and to my dismay I can't find any grease point nipples under the car. I can see several different places that have the rubber boots protecting everything they're on, but nothing to get grease into there.

Anyone know of a good way to get grease into those tight spots and also maybe a list of where exactly good places to grease??

Thanks y'all!

Newer vehicles have afflicted by this stupidity for a while now. You can do the ol' needle on the grease gun bit and hit your ball joints etc... It's not ideal, but the best you are going to get with stock parts.

The needle adapters work well and the small hole does not cause any issues. I did put grease nipples on the rod ends when I had the stock drag link and tie rod, but a needle adapter will do the job just fine.

FWIW I found that I only need to grease everything every 6k or so. I also do it after off-road trips, as all that flexing squeezes the grease out a bit.
