Page 432 of the owners manual says "Lubricate the front driveshaft grease fitting at each oil change listed in the appropriate maintenance schedule for your vehicle. Use Mopart type MS-6560 (lithium based grease), or equivalent." Of courge a lithium based grease will work fine, you shoudlbe able to by at Napa, Westbay, or whatever car parts places are in your area.
As for when per the maintenence schedule page 487 you are supposed to do this at 7,500, 15,000, 22,500, 30,000 miles and so on. As for the fitting you need to attach to the zerk it sould be a standard fitting (I just got my truck and have not climbed under to check) that you would have on a regular grease gun that uses a tube stye grease. When you look at the end of the gun there should be a hole big enough to go over the zerk and there are little clamps inside that hold on to it, then just pump in the grease. Normally for greasing a few pumps should work, unless this is the style that lets the grease run out of the joint, in which case grease it until you can see it at the joint, but Im not sure which one it is. A few pumps on the handle should suffice.
Oh ya when you put the grease gun on it the gun should almost click into place, if there is alot of grease comming from the fitting on the gun then it may not be on right, or the wrong one.
