I've lifted mine many times from the steel engine yoke that the rear motor mounts screw to. I've never bent one doing it this way but you could also lift from the point that the tranny mounts to the front crossbar. I've done this too but it seems to be about a balancing point and not as stable as the rear lift scenario.

If I have a floor jack and want to raise the van from the center rear without doing one side and then the other (I donšt want it to tip side to side right now) is there a center point that is strong enough to be a jack point (keeping in mind that as soon as I get the butt up in the air, Išll be jack standing the leafs and letting it rest back down on them). Will the transmission hold the weight?
