Jacks can come in handy when you have work under your vehicle. To figure out where to put jack stands on a truck, check your vehicle’s owner’s manual for its particular recommended lift points. Jack stands will generally go on either side of the jack itself.
Jack stand placement will depend on what part of your truck you’re working and if your truck is front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
Jacking up a vehicle can be dangerous work, especially when a car isn’t supported correctly. Make sure you know best safety practices with jacks and jack stands before trying to use them yourself. Don’t hesitate to reach out to a professional if you need some extra guidance
