Default Jacking my car up

Out of curiosity i tried to jack my truck up using the stock jack located in the pump. I was not able to jack up the car where the tire leaves the ground. Where are the jack point located?

You can put a couple of wood blocks under the jack.

The owner's manual will show the jack points.

I briefly viewed the manual and it and the point is on a cylinder bar. It doesn't look like it will stay and will easily slip off. I need to revisit the manual again.
