Istalling a storm door with j channel instead of brickmold

I'm looking for a bit of advice and or guidance from anyone who may have experienced this in the past. I have ordered an Anderson storm door that I intend on hanging this weekend however the home does not have traditional brickmolding, instead it has J channel holding the vinyl siding running up to the door jam. I've been considering cutting wood wedges to place under the J channel and srewing it against the house in an effort to have something firm to hang the storm door frame off of. I had considered trimming the siding back and moving the J channel over enough to add brickmolding however the deck posts are positioned in manner that won't allow this. Does anyone have any suggestions? I've attached a photo of the J channel and how it is currently positioned.

Just not going to work that way.
I'd be pulling off some of that siding to see what else they did wrong behind it.
I'd be looking to see it they at least installed some window tape under that J.
