Jacking up the truck?

I just got my 2003 6.0 not too long ago. This is gonna be the first time I have to jack up the truck. Where is a safe place to put the jack on the front of the truck? This may sound like a stupid question, but I would rather ask then jack the truck up by something I shouldnt. I really appreciate it.


thanks

James

Not to steal your thread, but I do not know how to start a new post. If I buy a 4 ton aluminum jack, will that be heavy duty enough to jack up my 09 f250? Thanks

I usually jack mine front end from the front links (the big ones that locate the axle under the truck), the rears I usually jack from the lower shock mounts then I'll put a jack stand right under the axle tube front or rear.

You can jack up the whole side of your truck at once by placing the jack on the frame rail closer to the front,just expieriment but be sure to use jack stands once you do before getting under it,I jack the rear by placing the jack under the rear Diff.Good luck,theses truck are tough as hell so don't worry about breaking anything ,look in your owner manual for jacking points.
