Lift points on the car?

What are all the proper places I can place a jack under the car to properly lift the max (front and back)?

When I put Max up on the lift I use the jack points stated in the owners manual.

You can jack the whole front end up by the support beam under the engine.

If you don't have a sway bar, you can use the rear beam to raise a rear wheel off the ground quickly without jacking the whole car up.

Thanks. A couple of q's though. The main support beam that runs vertically under the car, would it be alright to place the jack under the bolt and not where it 'bubbles' where it's supposed to be?

Sorry, but I want to be absolutely positive before I get under a lifted car!

Srt8ridin - I generally go for the mid point of that beam.
