It's mostly common sense, I know , but I'd feel better seeing more that what the Owners manual has.

Thanks

rear tyres position jack under the rear axle

front you will see a notch along the uni body just behind the front wheel

Thanks for the reply fouros. I was thinking it should be safe to jack it up from the rear axles and then put the jack stands there also but wasn't sure.

The problem with the front is that there isn't enough room for my jack AND a jack stand on the notched plate right behind the tire.

I've also got a 2001 WJ and I've got the FSM for that which tells you where you can jack it from.

I just don't want make a costly mistake.

When putting jack stands under the front, I jack it up from the front skid using a floor jack. If you do not have a floor jack, then Idk how you could do it? I used the cross member before I had the skid.

Thanks for the diagram ValveStem!

It looks like they only recommend the one place up front so I'll have to figure out another place for the jack stand or try to fit them both on the notched thing.

I use the LCA for the jacking point for the front and rear. Is that okay? Then I put jack stands on the unibody frame.

As long as you put it on a stand before you do any work the lca is fine, but you should really just lift at the lift point instead, or at the cross member like jeepster mentioned.
