I just ordered a Tusk scissor lift jack kit. Where's the best place/places to place it for field tire changes? What about using it regular maintenance with stands? I'm figuring on doing my own oil changes and thought I'd just use it with jack stands for easier access to the drain plug. Is there a specific placement if I just want to lift the entire front and a few inches?

You wont be able to lift the whole front or whole rear with a scissor jack. Too much suspension flex. You’ll have to lift under an A arm or under a trailing arm to lift an individual wheel off the ground for tire changes. It’s almost always sketchy to do in the field too. The ground is never even and the jack point is very small. It works in a pinch though. To lift the whole front or rear you’ll likely need a regular floor jack with a 4x4 or jack extension on the jack plate. The suspension drops forever before it gets all the way in the air.

Yup, mounted right to the tusk spare tire rack is the way to go.
The atv grip is to prevent possible and/or slipping rattling. (I couldn't find a small piece of hose at the time and now I'm too lazy to change it... lol) Don't know if it would have done either without it, but I just wanted to be sure.
