The u-joints are part of the drive shaft assembly. I'm pretty sure they'll have zirc fittings. Your scheduled maintenance guide will tell you every 15k miles you need to lubricate the propeller shaft and re-torque the propeller shaft bolt. If you are bringing your truck into the dealership they should automatically do it while servicing the truck. If you're bringing it to jiffy lube, they have no idea about it.
