Jack Points/ Stand Locations

So im under the truck today changing the oil and got to thinking that I'm at about 40k miles and a brake pad service is most likely on the horizon. I've done the job on my old F-150 (8 inch lift with 35's) and my girlfriends SUV. This would be the first time I did work on the F-250 which is alot heavier than anything else ive worked with. I have a set of 6 ton stands and 4 ton stands (which im assuming would be good for the rear). My question is where do I put them? the truck has a six inch lift and 35's on it. I know some guys would say under the axle, and others would say under the frame but when I was looking today that frame is really up there!

What are your recommendations and what has worked for you? (and fyi i did a search before my post). I have a 3.5 ton Torin big red wide saddle jack that should be more than adequate.

Thanks all.
Pat

Yup, right under the axle is perfect. You can go underneath the radius arm on the front if you want, but the axle is the most solid.

4 ton stands are fine for either end. The front end of the truck does not weigh 8000 lbs.....

Under the axle

Out of curiosity, where are the factory jack points?

so right under the axle tube seems to be the winner, with the radius arms being another "Safe" place to put the stands. What are you guys using as your lift point for the jack- pumpkin or also under the axle tube?

I think the factory lift point is the frame just inside the fender well if I'm not mistaken (at least thats where it is on cars.... not sure if that is the same with the truck)

Thanks for the help guys. I know its sort of a stupid question but better safe than sorry.

Send a message via Skype™ to ToMang07
Read your owners manual.

(The book in the glove compartment with a picture of a truck on it)

It has the instructions on where to jack the truck up.
