I can attest skipping the jacking part is not worth it. Tried it myself only on the 2x6s, and made a royal mess on my floor (yes, it's painted, but still).

NOTE: Since both drain plugs are IN FRONT of the sumps, you need to lift the rear higher than front to get A LOT more oil out of the sumps. I put the rear on ramps myself. And also suck dry the oil filter housing. After all of that, just pour exactly 9.5L and oil level will be right on the top mark . So yes, I have to buy a 10th liter every other oil change. Good luck.
