Default Jack positing with side skirts

I need to get under my car to fix some lose wires from under body lights. The lights was put on before I had side skirts installed and now not sure where is the best place to put floor jack to lift car.

Any suggestions?

Look under the car and look for solid places to place the jack, usually about 12 inches in from the side of the car. I have undercar LED lights and side pipes but I can find a place in the front and back to get the PT off the ground to fix things and change the oil.

Under you're suspension or frame rails. I make it a practice not to lift the car by the rocker panels when I not in an emergency situation. If it is part of the paintedbody I avoid jacking on it.
