Floor jack - where do you put it.

I don't like to put a floor jack pad on the factory jacking points as they tend to bend and damage the pinch welds and rail. The sedona does not have alternate jacking points.

Where do you put your floor jack for the front and back.

Has anyone every used a product like this to protect the rail and pinch welds?

You cut a 3/16 wide slot in it on a table saw or with a router?

Works ok and not a worry about it spitting under load?

Don't have a router, so cut the slot by hand, and its holding up.

I use a jack pad and haven't had any issues.

Look for any stout reinforced part on the sub-frame. Don't put the jack on anything connected to the suspension, floor boards or gas tank. Here's a screenshot of a jack point on the front from my Haynes manual for 09 Sedona. I've also lifted the entire front end up from the front sub frame.

I personally haven't had to lift the rear, so I don't have a personal favorite point but follow the advice of looking for a stout part on the frame and you should be good.

I also use ramps for when all I want to do is change the oil or coolant flushing etc. My ramps even gave me enough room to put a new oil pan on recently. I think I get about 10" of lift with my ramps. It's tight but I can get to most everything underside by using just the ramps.

Don't forget to chalk the wheels and e-brake...

I also use a plain hockey puck with both my vehicles with no issues or splitting. Pucks are pretty durable.
