Do one end at a time (front the back). For the back jack from the differential making sure not to bend the diff cover, I usually put a piece of wood on the jack, and Put the jack stands under the axle tubes. For the front you can Jack from the frame rail or A arms I believe and place the jack stands under the cross member for the engine.
