if you take a hammer to the side that the diff is on, you can actually smash it in enough to clear. If you get a 2" body lift, it will make this easier. I recommend cutting and welding the pan though. But if you must smash, you need to remove the pan first as you will crush the oil pickup.

The oil pickup also has to be moved. If you send me your pickup tube, i can do this for you.

just crush it then with a hammer. Do this with the oil pan attached to the motor with ALL the bolts in and of course the pickup tube removed.

And again, send me your pickup tube and I will take care of ya.
