Okay, I'm going to humble myself and ask most noobiest question ever. I searched everywhere and can't find anything. Where is the best jack point for the front? I'll be using a floor lift and placing jack stands right on the frame before the tranny crossmember. Please help a noob. LOL. :p

I don't know if it's the best place but toward the rear of the skidplate there is some sort of crossmember that the suspension is mounted to. I usually jack it up with skid plate on, just make sure your under that crossmember

Theres a beam that runs across the frame i use. Stand where your rear view mirror is on the door then just get under your truck and it should be right in line with those.
