I usually place them on the frame rails in the front, and split 50/50 between the frame rails and the axle tubes (depending on what I'm doing) in the rear. The lower control arms move, and should not be used.

The service jack provided with the vehicle is only intended to be used in an emergency for changing a deflated tire. Never use the service jack to hoist the vehicle for any other service. Refer to the Owner Guide when using the jack supplied with the vehicle.
TO AVOID INJURY FROM VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH A TRACTION-LOK AXLE, NEVER RUN THE ENGINE WITH ONE WHEEL OFF THE GROUND, SUCH AS WHEN CHANGING A TIRE. THE WHEEL STILL ON THE GROUND COULD CAUSE THE VEHICLE TO MOVE.
When using a floor jack, the vehicle may be raised at several locations. The front of the vehicle may be lifted by positioning the jack under the center of the No. 2 cross member. The front, as well as either side of the rear end, may be lifted by positioning the floor jack under the rocker flange at the contact points used for the service jack supplied with the vehicle.
Do not attempt to use jack pressure on either front or rear bumpers of any unitized vehicle.
Position jacks under the rear axle housing tubes between the suspension arm brackets and the differential housing. Do not place jacks under the suspension arm brackets.
