The photos in Grizzlypath's post #15 shown the two different positions with stock skid. i have more confidence putting floor jack under the protruding circle nearer to the front than the rectangular recess further to the back. Have you put the jack to the latter with no problem?
I'd also like to see what Grizzlypath has to say. Thanks guys.

Okay, looking at post #15, the circle near the front (circled in red) is your oil pan (this one has a Fumoto drain valve threaded in instead of a normal oil drain bolt). Obviously, don't jack the vehicle up from here. haha



This photo above, with the circle is where you should be putting a floor jack.

Per 2018 Toyota manual we are to jack where the orange circle is which is a recess behind the drain pan in post #15. Apparently quite a few have used this as jack point with no problem but I'm hesitant as I haven't got around to remove that part of the skid and see what is above it. The circle is what I would use but could not if I were to change oil filter or any other work above the front skid.
I so missed my 15 year old Jeep which I could jack anywhere along the axles and the frame and sometimes worked on stuff without jacking it up.

The orange circle in GrizzlyPath's post #7 is in the wrong spot. It does NOT match the diagram in the owners manual (also shown in post #7). Do not lift from here.

In the diagram, the lift point is clearly forward of the double-tear-drop cover for the oil drain plug. GrizzlyPath's orange circle is clearly rearward of that same cover.

The red circle from ElectroBoy's post is the correct spot.

These central jacking points, front and back, are intended to lift the vehicle to put it on jack stands. Then remove the jack. I hope nobody intends to get under the truck while itís balanced only on one central point.

For changing the oil and filter I just drive the front wheels up on some low ramps to get a few more inches of room to move around more easily.

You are absolutely right.
No, I have never worked under a vehicle without jack stand since a bottle jack fell when I tried to change a tire on the road and almost lost my hand.
What was I thinking!?

Not sure where the diagram in post #7 is from but I guess it's for 4th gen. You may see the jack point is on the front skid forward of the front wheels.
The diagram in post #14 by ElectroBoy is same as my 2018 manual which you may see the jack point is on the second (engine) skid and behind the front wheels i.e. further to the back.
Regardless, I would use the jack point as the photos in post #8 actually used by ElectroBoy i.e. on the front skid and forward of the front wheels.

Grizzly said it was from the factory service manual.

Rotated and clipped service manual pic and skid plate pic. Looks like the same spot.

Kindly double check the two diagrams:
The one in your post #25 has the front lift point forward of front wheels.
The one in your post #14 has the front lift point further back from front wheels which is what I have in the manual.
Hope this clears up the confusion.

Here is a photo of the front jack point to lift both front wheels off the ground. On my 2018 ORP, stock skids. It is slightly in front of the front wheels center point.

I guess the diagram in our manual, which has the lift point further back of the front wheels and what Grizzlypath has been using (see post #15), is wrong. i'm glad he didn't have much issue except a bit off balanced per his earlier post.
