"MUST USE QUALITY JACK STANDS!!!!!!!"
Not those stamped 3 legged sheet metal ones either.
Just ask my best friend since high school. He has had two nine inch metal rods in his back (holding his spine together) for the last 17 years. His truck fell on him just after graduation and broke his back. He was using those old style 3 legged jack stands in the back and a bottle jack to hold up the front while he was doing a brake job, the jack stands legs spread out letting the truck fall over on top of him, the bottle jack's body cracked like a coconut at the same time according to the investigator.
He can't even lift up his kids to give them a hug.
Dumb move to use anthing else but the proper safety equipment.
