I am not a Ford guy and would like pictures or good description of the jack points for:

1. Lifting the front end - both wheels off the ground.
2. Lifting the back end - both wheels off the ground.
3. Best location to lift a single rear wheel from the side of the Boss.
4. Best location to left a single front wheel from the side of the Boss.

I had to lift my LS from the rear, using a floor jack with a piece of one inch foam at the diff. On the front end I had some blue one inch foam that I cut to make some ramps to drive onto, jack would not clear the splitter! Had to use two pieces to jack it up. Under the engine k frame there is 3x3 solid jack point. There is good side lift points, just look at the bottom you will see them. Using the foam between the jack and the safety stands kept from marking the spots.

If you want a great way to insure you are not tearing anything up look at the Kenny Brown Racking rails.

They are going on our car ASAP!

Read someplace NOT to use the diff. housing/case as a single rear lift point due to the slight offset alignment of the drive shaft and/or rear axles. Have done this to put jack stands under axles but with the Boss it may or not be a good practice...

I don't see any reason not to use the diff as a jacking point... I do all the time to jack the rear of the car and have no problems whatsoever, and it's easy to lower the car onto stands placed under the rear axle.

Jacking the front is real hassle. Even low profile jacks won't always fit under the front portion of the rockers to reach all the way to chassis frame rails (blue dots in the above pic). If you've lowered the car forget it. So I drive the front of the car up on ramps then use the center of the K member as a jacking point, and place stands where indicated. Works well, but it's a hassle. May have to go for the KB rails as a solution.
