The car makes no sense. And the jack points seem to be front and rear but not in the front middle or side middle. It's a really hard car to work on. I made wooden wheel ramps, because the front end kept pushing my metal wheel ramps I use on my Toyota. I haven't been motivated to try that yet, but I'm hoping that works.
Ford really shouldn't have put that stupid plastic trim along the sides.
You only want to jack at the jack points on the side anyways as they are reinforced for that purpose. I agree the setup sucks and after the first time dealing with it I bought the Steeda jack rails which let you use almost the whole side of the car to jack and I lift one side at a tume and 4 jackstands anytime I work on it. If your jack doesn't fit under the car you need the proper low profile jack if you plan on working on it yourself, my car is lowered around an inch and my jacks fit fine.
