Jack Placement

I've sort of asked this before.

I have a floor jack and I have jack stands. If I have to place the jack stand at one of the four pickup points, where do I place the floor jack?

In the front you can use the unibody frame and place the stand under the frame, for the rear jack up the body useing the subframe mount just before the rear tire you'll see a large bolt faceing down (becarefull you'll be close to the fuel tank) then place the stand under the pinch weld hard point, that is where you'll see two bolts going straight into a metal bracket (where you are suposed to put the factory trunk jack.)
