Default Jacking 2010 Pilot for tire rotation

I'm having trouble figuring out how safely to jack the pilot up for tire rotation. I heard about metal tabs near the centerline of the axles but they look way too flimsy. I want to jack all four corners rather than oppsoite corners, I'm worried opposite corners would rack or twist the car. I think the location in the manual are only geared towards jacking to change one tire? All my previous cars had frames, no uni-body's.Any thoughts? Thanks!

If you are looking at the correct items those front and rear "tab" locations in the centerline are lift points as shown in the 2009 Honda Service Manual. If you are not sure have the dealer's service tech point them out to you.

Using a floorjack on the center lift point, lift the front end, place jackstands on each side at the front side lift points as shown to change a flat. Lower the floorjack and make sure the vehicle is stable on those jackstands. Remove the floorjack, then raise the rear from the center liftpoint, place jackstands at the rear side lift points, lower the floorjack check stability of jackstands.

or you could get one of these

I'm also getting ready to do my first rotation and found that my hydraulic floor jack and jackstands are woefully inadequate to lift the Pilot. Any recommendations on a good set of jackstands that you DIYers use?

I have sears units, not the cheapo ones but the heavier duty (ie more weight) rated for 4 tons.

Jacking on the sill closest to the A and the C pillar is my recommendation.
