I jacked up the front to the lowest point on the stands with parking brake set, then jacked up the back to the lowest point, then just inched my way up. I have two jacks and 4 stands though. In the past I was able jack the front into position then jack the rear into position when only using one jack. But I like to keep the jack under the car when I'm under it. Even if it's in a bad spot I only apply the pressure and don't lift on the point just as a safety. I would rather the jack go through the bottom of the motor than the car accidentally fall on my face. Just my preference though.
