I went to the TW website and read his recommendations on grease. Two things stood out. In his words: "Most grease will probably be adequate with the exception of thin motor assembly grease." and "If you run in a lot of water or mud, it may also be good to use a grease that has water resistant characteristics."
My recommendation stands. Go to your local auto parts store and get some chassis/wheel bearing grease. If it says EP on the label that's even better as is grease with molybdenum (moly). Moly helps reduce wear.

SilverSport Any name brand extreme pressure (EP) chassis grease will work.

Grease Recommendations

So what do you guys with the knowledge recommend for grease on your universal joints and slip yoke? I invested in Tom Woods shafts and got some information from him about what to use but translating that expertise into a brand/type is beyond me...

Anyone have an actual brand/type they use and live by for these areas?
