The rear end is no problem lifting. That said, be very careful lifting the Front end. If done from the side on the frame rail, no problem. If lifting from dead center on the cross frame, there is the caution. If your jack has a rubber pad in the saddle, fine. It is the bare metal saddles that may slip out from under the frame and lodge itself between the radiator and the frame, causing major headache. That will happen when the jack is going up and the load is shifting towards the rear end and the jack does Not travel to the rear to stay centered on the frame. That framework is also made from Aluminum, not Steel. It Will Flex some when lifting if the jack doesn't travel during the lift. Try to fabricate something "grippy" to use when lifting from the front of the engine. Thick rubber pad or thin pad around a 2X4 will do in a pinch......
