V6 front jacking point

Has someone has a picture of the undercarriage of a V6, I would like to see how the front jacking point looks like not the side ones but the one in the middle.

When swapping out wheels on my V6 I couldn't find anywhere except just behind the front tire. I'm curious to know this as well

This is the official shot of the "base" (non-ZL1) undercarriage with the pinch weld lift and jack points highlighted.

I may be wrong, but I remember looking and seeing that the front jack point is covered by a metal panel. I assume to use it you'd have to remove it or risk damaging it, so I just use the pinch welds.

The pinch welds are the lifting and jacking points, see the rocker panel cutouts in the diagram above.

I've seen the pinch welds but it will be a lot easier jacking from a center point and then placing the two jack stands at the same time

If you jack from the second cutout in the front (to the right of the number "1" on the diagram), doesn't it raise the entire side of the chassis so you can slide in both jack stands? This is the recommended method as far as I know.

Arpad is right. There are cutouts in the skirts. Jack from they're only. Anywhere else will damage it.
