I use a rubber mat and my craftsman jack about four times now at the point in question no issues to get the car of jack stands, and lower it down on 2x4s the jack from the side to remove the 2x4s.

Just to confirm, this method works fine  :drive:

When jacking from the sides I use one so I don't crush the seam. But when jacking the car from the subframe I just put a towel on the jack so I don't scratch the paint :)

hehe not exactly stealing, just uncrated a APC server rack and the upper supports are perfectly sized 2x4s.. They would usually just go in the trash

Yeah, I've been jacking my car up like this for the past few years -- no issues.

The jack I use does have a rubber pad, which prevents some paint scratching.
