how do I jack up my truck?!
 
I've got the front lifted right now, it's under the front Springs. Someone tell me if that's where they're supposed to go.

BUT THE BACK! I kept jacking it up and putting stands under the back bar thing and it falls back down. I NEED MY TIRES OFF!

HOW DO I GET IT UPPPPPP

THANKS.

Jack it up under the rear diff and put the jack stands underneath that as well (out towards the sides of course).

The general rule of thumb is that you can jack up on frame or anything that suspension connects too (as that will be the strongest part of the truck). Just have some common sense about where you are placing things. Obviously putting jack stands in the middle of a control arm or a sway bar is a terrible idea.... Find something flat and solid and you should be good.

I jack up my trucks rear end from the rear differentials center pumpkin, but i have a floor jack
if you are using a regular scissors or bottle jack, jack it up from the plate that the shock absorbers are fastened too
