    <font color="green"> Are you talking about where to put it for when you install the lift? It's not a great idea to work on a vehicle that's just on a jack, especially when you're going to be banging and pounding on it. That being said, you're going to need a set of tall stands to do it, the jack will never go high enough to lift the truck from anywhere except the axle, and that just isn't going to work... I got a set of 10 ton Lincolns that go to 34" high, got them at Pep Boys. </font color>

    <font color="green"> Yup, what 70~K5 said... You can even jack it up under the diff, the right side will lift up sooner, but the whole truck will come up pretty soon afterwards. Only the suspension will flex for the most part, so the frame will still be pretty even to put the jackstands under it.</font color>
