I'm swapping a 2jzge-T into my MKIII Supra and am planning to put the 7mgte out of into my 4-Runner in the next year or so. I have a 2" body lift and was thinking about putting a 1" drivetrain lift (4crawler motor mount spacers, budbuilt xmember) to try and clear the IFS diff without modding the oilpan or pickup. Any thoughts?

It may help, but you will still have clearance issues. Might be enough to take a hammer to it, you will just have to try and see.

Thanks, just trying to judge about how much clearance is needed. I could probably even do a 2" drivetrain lift if I modify the horsecollar crossmember.

A front sump pan will clear, but you will be more prone to oil starvation on steep terrain.
