    When i need to jack mine up, I usually just jack up either the whole front or the whole rear of the car. I use the k-member or the rear end. My little floor jack from autozone will slide right under either, but for my full size jack, I have to drive the car up on 2 2x8s to raise it up a couple of inches before the jack will slide under. I put the jack stand somewhere along the front or rear subframe rails. You can also jack on the subframes or on the subframe connectors if you have them I think.
