Making a crossmember for lifting a vehicle with uneven frame width

Hi. I have a Datsun Pickup and basically my quickjack can't be used with it because the frame narrows too much towards the front.

Turning the jacks sideways doesn't help either because the jacking points are further apart than the width of the frame at the front.

So I have this buddy whose a welder and an engineer, and we brainstormed a bit about a making a ladderframe like the quickjack and placing it across the quickjacks. Shouldn't be any issue constructed with the same gauge steel as the quickjacks right? I have the 5000 model.
