yea, those are an accident waiting to happen, block of wood or wood under the jack is a better idea.. However, if the jack is a small 1.5 or 2 ton you get from Walmart, than it is too small. You need at least 23" of lift in front of the rear tire on the low part of the frame, and a lot of 3 tons go to 27". I'v also lifted on the leaf spring plate to put a jack stand under the frame
