 Widening tire stance on JD 4400

I want to widen the tire stance on my JD 4400 to the maximum. What is the safest way to jack the tractor up? Where do I place the jack? There doesn't seem to be a good place to locate jack stands. Any ideas? Obviously both wheels have to be off the ground and that makes me nervous!

 Widening tire stance on JD 4400

I have a 4300 but it has the same rims and tires as your 4400. I asked the dealer to swap my rears for a wider track but the mechanic told me not to bother since it would only yield a total of 1 1/2" in width. The offset is obviously only 3/4" per wheel and not worth the time and dangers involved. On the other hand the fronts being swapped adds considerably to the width. A note on the fronts though is that the mechanic told me to be careful about bouncing down rutted roads and pounding the front end at high speed because he'd seen one customer tear up the front bearings due to abuse. I also understand that you have faster tire wear with the fronts set wide. On my hilly property I don't drive fast anywhere, and for the extra stability I'm not concerned about the tire wear issue.
