Default Quick Jacks positions

The BDRs have the QJs positioned outward. On other builds, I have noticed them positioned inwards. Is there a set standard that is more 'true' per historical standards?

Interesting photo that also shows the fork of the QJs to be on the inside (i.e. closest to the body) whereas on the BDR, they are positioned away from the body.

What I meant by 'inward' and 'outward' in my original post was referring to the position of the QJs and how on the BDRs, the forks are further apart from each other whereas in some cases on other builds, they are closer to each other.

All my pictures at Shelby American in LV show them outside (left-right).
As to say the distance between radius cutouts are set wide as opposed to narrow (left-right).

I thought that 427's were out so that the oil cooler would not get crushed. But on the silver 289 shown above, it looks like it's oil cooler would get crushed.

Inward unless there is an oil cooler interference as 1ntCobra suggested. Run a tube across from one hook to the other to test : )
