Grease fittings on Bwoody end links?

For those that have installed these on your Jeep, did you order them with the grease fittings? Is it worth the extra $25 or can I just save that money and get the "regular" fittings and just grease them up good when I install them?

Thanks for any input,
Ryan

I'm not worried about the grease, I have that, just wondering if I get the bushings without the grease fittings if I am going to have to take the damn things off every six months and grease them to keep from having squeaks. Or are guys that have bought the ones without grease fittings finding they can go years without greasing them as long as you lather them up nicely upon install.

Thanks.

Sounds like maybe I will just save the $25 and get them without the fittings. Thanks guys.

PS A follow up question that I'll do a search for in a minute but can you really see these links from outside the truck? Meaning, does it really matter what color I get them in? Quite honestly I think I'd rather they just be black even if you can see them just so they blend in.

If you lay down you can see them, but you have to know where you are looking for. Just get them in wrinkle black and have them blend in.

I've had mine with no fittings for about two years now and no problem with them. The grease fitting is unnecessary IMO.
I spray some lithium grease every now and then to prevent squeeking but it's probably not needed either if everything was torqued down properly.

I spent the extra $25 for peace of mind. Considering what some routine maintenance costs are, such as transfer case fluid changes, the extra $25 for a permanent install is a drop in the bucket.
