4th gen 2500 Ram front axle grease port

About ready to do my second oil change....noticed a sticker on the fender that states each oil change needs the front driveshaft greased. Can't seem to figure out where this is....sad really as I spend my previous life as a GM Tech. Help?!?

It is on the upper part of the drive shaft. You need a needle fitting not a zerk.

On Turbo Diesel Register . com there has been a big debate over the greasing of the front prop shaft on the new 4X4's. Some have the fitting buried in the cross and some do not. It seems that some of the shafts that are being supplied and can not be greased; no fitting.

Here is the link to the thread:
