    what you do is take a 2x4, some duct tape, and a bungie cord.......oh, I just saw the thing about no hilljack ideas. Nevermind.

    I'm not so sure I wouldn't worry with it but that's just me.

    no no brace, i ended up jacking the motor up with the tranny jack attached to the trans, and took some thin pieces of wood and matched the distance between the crossmember and oil pan, and just filled the gap so its sitting at stock location, no worry about the pan cause its right on a flat area with plenty of support and load is spread out, plus its a cast pan so im really not worried about it.
