Default definitive jack/jack stand points with pictures/diagrams project?

I have searched many times trying to collect all of the info. re: jack placement. What I would love is an under car shot with arrows pointing to the front jack point, the read diff jack point, the CORRECT side jack points and any other places underneath that are OK to place jackstands under (suspension components, frame rails etc. etc.) Anyway - I would be willing to fill in the diagram and submit it to the FAQ - but I don't have a way of taking a nice clean undercar shot while its on a lift. Anyone?? I think this could be a nice addtion to the FAQ especially considering that XVIPER's posts re: oil, tranny, and diff. changes are getting a lot of attention...

Here's the front side. The area above the white jack pad is re-inforced:


Here's the rear side:


Here's the center rear location that is the diff housing itself. You put the jack pad right under that horseshoe shaped piece that has the drain plug in the middle of it (where the wrench is):


Here's the front center location. Look directly above the needle of my torque wrench and you see a "hollow" in the cross beam. That is where you put the jack pad (surrounding that hollow). It is also possible to jack the car up anywhere on that cross beam but the balance point is that hollow):


The front and rear center jack points is recommended that you place a shop rag on the jack pad to avoid damage to those locations but I find it hard to see the proper alignment on the front center one if there is a rag in the way, so I have permanently installed a piece of carpet on my jack pad.
The central jack points is quite far under the car and your jack may not reach them. I cut 4 pieces of 4X10 wood planks the width of the tires and drive the car up onto them. This allows the jack to reach and still have enough of a stroke length to get the car raised.

OR, as cdelena just pointed out, you can look at the little pictures in the owner's manual.

yep - but what I was hoping to do was get a pic of the full underbody of the car and label ALL of the places you can put a stand or jack... Just need a good pic...

Without a crane to lift the whole car, you won't get anything but some sort of composite pic. A garage hoist may not get the car high enough for a complete pic of the underside.

yea. A little resentment there. Quite the loss if you ask me. Although I belong to both forums so I get Billman, Slows, and the xviper. What a wealth of knowledge.
