I put the wheel chocks on the passenger side front tire, front and rear.
Recognize that I have not played with the jack. When you say "bottle jack," I tend to think of a hydraulic jack. These are usually pretty heavy, obviously these are a lighter, screw-style bottle jack that cannot leak.

I normally have been able to attach the mechanism for operating the jack to the jack and slide it under the vehicle. However, with this design of jack, probably difficult. I actually like the scissor type jacks for this reason. Usually can hook the jack with the tool and position it. I actually used the scissor jack out of my wife's Wrangler to change a lady's tire on her Camry the other day in the ark because I knew how to get it in & out in the dark, knew how to operate it, etc.

Not a big fan of a screw style bottle jack.

There is a 2ton jack at harbor freight that will fit Nader the back seats. Plenty of lift and cheap, $29, for most of your needs.
