SOURCE: jack stand
jack stands most times are placed under neath the axles however in your case the stands should be placed behind the front wheels on the spot where you whould place a regular jack if let's say you were changing a tire. if your working on the rear of the vehical you should put them under each side of rear axle.

Jack one side at a time. Place your jack under the lower control arm, or if it won't go under on a frame rail and lift from there. You may need to use some blocking to get the car high enough if you jack at a frame rail.
Jacking on the transaxle housing puts you at high risk of doing some very expensive damage. That housing is either aluminum or white metal. They don't bend like steel, they just break. Hope this helps.

Jacking points on all Jeep vehicles
Your Jeep was supplied with a jack for emergency road repairs. This jack is fine for changing a flat tire or other short-term procedures not requiring you to go beneath the vehicle. Do not attempt to use the jack on any portions of the vehicle other than specified by the vehicle manufacturer. Always block the diagonally opposite wheel when using a jack.
Placing a floor jack under the front frame rail
Placing a floor jack under the rear frame rail at the leaf spring shackle. It may be necessary to place a block of wood between the frame rail and the jack
Supporting the front of the vehicle with jack stands placed under each frame rail
A more convenient way of jacking is the use of a garage or floor jack. You may use the floor jack at the specified points in following the illustrations.
Never place the jack under the radiator, engine or transmission components. Severe and expensive damage will result when the jack is raised. Additionally, never jack under the floorpan or bodywork; the metal will deform
