same as topic. Where is a strong area to jack these things up? Is there anything you can do to maybe strengthen the bottom of the car so its solid? it seems where ever you put the jack something bends.

Factory spots are on the side rails by the doors. Cant think of good way describing the area.

only problem i ever had was when the car fell off the jack and the jack dented the drivers fender at the bottom. Not the factory jack and i was in a garage with slick floor so it just slid.
