Perhaps this helps. It´s Greman, but you can see what´s important.

If your Jeep is stock, that´s all.
Some aftermarket driveshafts, control arms, track bars, sway bar disconnects, ..., hav etheir own zerk fittings.

There are a total of 7 zerk fittings on a stock TJ, all on the front-end.

weird I have a 4" pro comp lift, do you know where more would be, and the funny thing is, is that my control arms and all that looks stock, not sure b/c I bought it with the lift installed so really I have no clue what it is, or what

That you have a Procomp lift doesn't change that your front-end has 7 zerk fittings. Get down in front of your Jeep and just look for them... steering knuckles and steering... all 7 zerks are right there.

Personally I would use the red grease meant for Chrysler/Mopar vehicles for those particular zerk fittings. If you look at the various tubes of grease for sale, you'll probably find some that are automotive brand specific. It's just that not all greases are compatible (some will actually attack a different kind of grease) so it's safer if it is meant for a Chrysler/Mopar vehicle. I think the actual brand of grease I use is Valvoline.

Thanks Jerry!

I just purchased yet another tool in a "Zerk" gun and it has a small cartridge included which states that it is Lithium based grease #2.. Not sure what that means..

Anyhow. I will head to Autozone or schucks today to see if I can obtain some Mopar specific grease.
