I prefer to use a scissor Jack and a plank of wood to spread load under the Sill.
If you jack up under the cross member put something under the cross member first.
If you have a spyder chassis the cross member is round so could slip.
The original jacks are justvto change a wheel if you have a puncture NOT to support the car while you work on it.

Just a thought , but to achieve the required ground clearance to install a jack , would carrying a foot pump to temprarily inflate the tyre be good enough to quickly achieve the requied clearance ??

But you have a puncture . A Scissor Jack will easily go under.
