Jack points

What points on the truck are you guys using to jack up the Jeep? I found a link to a diagram that suggest the rear axle to lift the rear. I have a set of race ramps and even with a good jack I cant get a high enough lift from that point to get the rear cradles under the wheels. Is it ok to jack up from the rear diff instead? Or should I use some part of the side frame rail?

Also for those of you who use jack stands, exactly where on the frame front and rear are you positioning them?
