under each tire

Make wooden ramps out of ply wood and blocks of wood so you can drive up on each one

Where you put the factory jack into the holes, directly underneath is a hole opening where there was once jack stand mounting points(most likely they have rotted off) , you can still place jack stands there. If you have side skirts make sure they do not touch the jack stand or they will pop off some of the plastic clips. Or you can place a larger jack stand under the differential on the support bracket. Do not put your car on stands that support the control arms on the front or rear, you will bend the control arms.

Sorry I will have pics for you in two weeks but right now I am stuck in Wyoming finishing up with WyoTech. But when I put mine up on stands I just found the frame that is closest to the wheels and put them there.
