    I have tried search but does anyone know or have pics of the jack stand points used for the car to rest on if you car has running boards.

    There's a Jack lift point on the front and rear of the car. And one by each wheel. When lifting the car in the front to put jack stands, how can I lift the car without scratching the front center mount point and therefore potentially generating rust? Normally, for added safety I put chokers...
