bluvikng They are probably sealed U-joints. That is all that comes stock, it seems. But if they were greaseable, they would have little things sticking out, that you could connect a grease gun to, called grease certs. If you have a standard, and you were pulling someone, you probably slipped the clutch, and burned it a little. No big deal, as long as you didn't do it for a long period of time.

I have no idea if the u joints are greasable. If they are, I haven't done it. How can I tell if they are?

Adventurous I took it out again today and didn't have a problem with the burning smell. Hopefully it was just the clutch yesterday.

MR.CLIFFORD I bet it is something burning.

Get under your jeep. Look around. Especially when the smell is present.

Burning smell

I was working the Jeep really hard yesterday trying to tow a fellow jeeper out of the sand and smelled a burning smell coming from the rear passenger side. There was no smoke, didn't see any fluids, just a burning smell. Any ideas what it might be?
