One more thing.... I didn't have the time or patience to grind down the nubs leftover from the crossmember removal so when I installed the lift pads, I turned them so the nub was on the outside of the frame otherwise they interfered with the jack seating all the way down. The nub is about 1/4" or so.

Nice mod! Too bad I have the Harbor Freight jack so your mod won't work.

Do you have the yellow one?

From the looks of the picture, the pads are bolted on just like the sears jack. If so, I don't see why you couldn't perform the same mod.

Another idea that came to me but I didn't feel like tackling was...

the support across the very front of the jack....could cut if off and weld it inside about 3-4" and the jack would no longer have any issues with the jiffy stand. I was thinking about just cutting it out. I can't imagine the jack would suffer any rigidity issues.
