Where to put jack stands on the W463?

Ok a n00b question here, while I wait for my backordered floor jack from Denmark, Iíve been thinking about where to put the jack stands once I have the g up.

I changed a flat once, the manual says to use the axel carrier tube to lift the truck which is what I did, no sweat.

Today I crawled under the truck to look around. If I put the jack stands under the ladder frame, it seems to be too narrow (the stands would be too close together) if Iím doing a tier rotation and have the vehicle up on 4 jack stands.

If I put the jack stands on the axel carrier tube, Iím thinking it might interfere w me working on the brakes.

What do you guys suggest or how have yíall gone about this?

I put them under the tubes, just far enough in so that they don't interfere with the tires. works great. Trying to support the frame is problematic since the axles will drop a substantial distance. You would have to lift the frame very high, adding to the risk/damage if something goes wrong. Also, some work should be done with the suspension parts in their normal road going relative positions.

Haha I forgot about the wheel articulation if supported by the ladder frame. Thanks a bunch!
