That's what I was going to do but I want to put 2 back there and take the jack out like I do on the front, anything else..

(I've never been under the rear of my car)

You can put the jackstands where the subframe mounts to the car, put the jack under the rear diff.

I would invest in and use some ramps if you aren't removing the wheels anyway.

Quoting raptorreed:

You can put the jackstands where the subframe mounts to the car, put the jack under the rear diff.

There are four jack points around the rocker panels on the car for doing tire changes. Put the jack stands at those points. There is an arrow stamped into the rocker panel spine that shows where they go.

Old pics, but gets the point across:
