Floor Jack and Stands points

I'm quite new in the motor world, but after buying a used Sportage 2005 I want to start learning how to service it.
The first two things that I want to do is just a filter/oil change and to adjust the parking brake. I've found a lot of information about these two tasks but where I'm struggling is on how to jack the car up.

I've one 3T floor jack and two 3T stands, so I feel confident enough, but I've not found any information about where can I put the jack or the stands without damaging the car.

I've tried to make some pictures under the body but they are too close up and even trying to make a collage the image is far from clear.

I'm attaching the collage from the rear car and two schemes, any suggestion about where to place the jack/stands will be helpful, thanks.

Well, I've been looking information and it seems that the rear differential can be a good point to lift some cards with a trolley jack, but not sure if this applies to the Sportage 2005. Anyone can confirm it?

Yeah the rear differential is usually a good place for the rear and pinch welds for jack stands. You can always jack using the frame too.

You can do it!

Iíve been looking for the same information and canít seem to find anything definitive. Iím changing the front struts on my wifeís 09 Sportage tomorrow so think Iíll end up jacking one side at a time on the pinch welds with a rubber puck on the floor jack then slide a jack stand underneath and then jack up the other side and do the same. On my Mustang itís easy to do on the front K Member but I havenít found a spot Iím comfortable with on the Kia, especially for the front end.
