I need to replace hub. Prefer to use oem spec grease but having trouble locating part number. Anyone have a FSM to look up correct grease?

These are sealed unit bearings, no grease involved - what's in 'em is what's in 'em.

The replacement videos I’ve seen show greasing the outside before install. Not needed?

Haven't seen those videos, care to link one? I'll take a wild guess though and assume they're probably just trying to prevent it from corroding inside the knuckle, making it hard to remove next time. If that's the case then pretty much any grease would be fine, just general chassis type grease or even a very thin coat of anti-seize.

I've seen grease recommended on the seal behind the hubs, but I don't know if the new trucks have a separate seal.

I'll be using anti-seize to keep my new hub from sticking. I think it will stay in place better, and it's made for that kind of thing. Plus, I have a gov. surplus pint can of it

You are probably right. Anti seize is likely the reason.
