04 Ram 1500 U Joints, are they all the same on the truck? How Many ? What brand?

Hi, I am thinking about replacing my U joints though out the truck, How many are there front and rear and are they all the same part # or are there different ones used though out the truck?

What is the best brand? I was thinking of ordering Splicer, Grease able or not non grease able?

I am guessing rear D Shaft takes same front and rear, but what about front? of truck.

Any tips are replacing them?

Thanks

PS Truck is 4 WD 5.7 auto SLT Ext cab.

Well I went with Spicer 5-1330x non grease able, I replaced all 3 of them ( 2 in the Rear shaft and 1 in the front shaft. Honestly when I took the shafts out the factory Joints were still in pretty good shape. The Joints were cheap so I just replaced them.

The non-greasable one's are suppose to be the strongest, with that said the greaseable ones would probably be the best for longevity. I have some 1350 bits and pieces that'll have a shaft built one day...

I have used Dennys Drive shafts before to build some for me, I called them and they suggested the Non Greasable ones, They said I should get many years of service out of them, I had over 100 K on the originals, If I get that again I am happy for the $60 in joints.
