Jacking up car on four 3 ton jacks?

Is it safe to do that? Lift the entire car up onto four 3 ton jacks on the 4 jacking points...

sure it's safe to do that.. but may not be safe to craw under it. What sort of jack? Hydraulic definitely No No.. Either way I'd get proper jack stands.

1 of those could almost hold the whole car, so with 1 at each jacking point, you are perfect.
