I've heard the piece behind the oil pan called the "jack plate" and is a good place to jack the front end - i just suggest the use of a piece of wood unless your jack has rubber to keep this piece from becoming mangled, as mine is dented pretty badly
What he said ^^^^^
Mine is all mangled as well. Just make sure it doesn't slip off if sitting on a piece of wood.
I've done it a thousand times, works perfect.
