Default Ramps and jackstands...

Just wondering - is it safe to use ramps to elevate the back end of the car and use a jack to lift the frontend with jackstands supporting the front?

I'm planning on changing my midpipe so I need to elevate my vehicle.

I would feel safe doing it, as long as the ramps and jackstands are stable, but your sense of safety is what matters. It isn't really necessary, though. I installed my turboback just by putting the back end on jackstands.
