Where to Jack up my 1960 Overlander with leaf springs

I know where to Jack up my 1973 Overlander (between the tires). The 1960 has Leaf springs and I was wondering where to Jack it up to remove my tires and wire brush/por15 my wheel wells. I was wondering if I do it between the tires like the 1973,

Where would I put my Jack stands for safety?

I am bringing this thread forward again before it leaves the portal. I have hadco axles on it and I hope they are in good shape.

With leaf spring axles, where to jack it depends on what you want to do. If you only want to get one wheel off the ground, I would jack it under that axle close to the wheel. If you wanted to get the whole side off the ground, I would jack directly on the frame. I would use ramps, if I wanted to get one axle (and its two wheels) off the ground.
