I assume them to be greased occasionally?, or are they sealed up?
Working with a single cab 4x4 2o11 is the year

All i know is on their 4wd's up till 2019 toyota had at least 1 zerk fitting on the front driveshaft u-joint. My 2020 has zero...all sealed. Before 2019 or so there is a good chance you have up to 6 zerk's for a 4wd tacoma.

so far i have just found 2 on the main shaft to the rear, its a single cab so no extended 2pc shaft with a middle bearing/joint like on my rig
and i don't think the dealer monkeys had ever greased this thing because its so clean in the joints!
have not been able to look at the front shaft yet...

is this another one of those 'lifetime fluids' for the joint grease?
