^^This.

Tire rotation is one of those tedious tasks, but I do it on my 2015. Owner's manual only shows front-to-back-to-front rotation, so I loosen lug nuts, get the whole side up onto jack stands, and then remove the wheels, swap positions, get 'em snugged and then off the jack stands.

I will NEVER rely on the jacking mechanism to hold the vehicle up while I'm working on it. The ONLY exception will be in a roadside tire change situation, and then I won't ever put myself under the vehicle while it's supported with a jack only.
