    I will attach a picture for you to the area where you could put the jackstands our the lift post. When lifting the hellcat should always put cardboard on the pads to avoid any metal damage to the underbody of the car

    The tech told me to actually put cardboard on the lift pad itself so the groves that are there to keep traction don't scratch or pull anything
