Would it be possible to put 4 jacks on each corner of the car and then lower the body and frame down then the body would rest on those then I could put the 2 4x4's under the supports, then roll the frame out? could that work?

Here ya go Ty.... This is the dangerous way and I would recommend using the Mechanic Shop "Finger type Lift" that will lift your body off evenly and safely. Well if you have no choice this is the way I did it and had multiple Jack's and other Friends to lift Body off.

As the body is completely unbolted from the frame and laying there, my friends lifted up on the front, tilting the body up just enough to pass the 4x4 across then we did the same for the rear. The wood sits on the frame holding the body until you jack up the wood/body high enough to clear then place the wood on jack stands safely.

DO NOT TRY THIS BY YOURSELF, YOU COULD GET HURT!
