It looks as if you're in a rust-prone area, so make sure you use some kind of protection between the jack and body.

Not sure if this is ideal, but it seems like a good spot. I didn't actually use it, though. Thought I'd wait to see what everyone had to say.

I'd rather put the stands farther back behind the front axle, but didn't find a good spot. This location puts the stands in my way when working under the engine.
