And that guy with the air bag lol.. I saw on TV once how they slice a slab of rock in a mine and slip an air bag in it and then pump it up and then they wrap a chain around it once it slides out. Amazing.. but I wouldn't try and rig a set up for a car myself.

Also need to block at least one wheel from rolling.
There have been many times when I've moved the car a little just trying torque something loose.

In addition to the jack stands and jack, my brother would place the wheels underneath the car also. I do the same. We also leave the jack in place unless it has to be removed to complete the work.

I've never heard of anyone trying to get underneath a vehicle with only a scissor jack supporting it.

Placement for the 'scorts... (front)

Do *NOT* support the vehicle using the frame rails, most visible on the left side of this picture...

...they will crush.

Rear placement is the rather obvious frame piece between the wheels.

I suspect they're attempting to install a lift kit.
Then again they don't need to remove the chassis... well... maybe if they had to do some welding... dunno...

Looks like no engine either. Wouldn't surprise me if they were building a mud buggy or monster truck.

In other words, it looks like a body ready for a chassis.
