I've got the oil pan off and thinking about making a spacer to increase oil capacity. Does 1" seem enough? If I go thicker are there ground clearance issues? I've also heard about kicked-out oil pans, which I'm assuming means increasing the capacity by welding on a box. Worthwhile or leave that alone?
Also looking for an oil cooler and plumbing.
It appears as though you already have a cooler and plumbing.

Just change out the factory cooler, or add to it, an auxiliary cooler.
A spacer seems like a real PITA, especially since you will have to lower the oil pick-up for about 10mm clearance between
the bottom of the pan and the pick-up. For all of the hassle of a spacer, building kick-outs with baffles is a lot easier. Do you TIG weld?
If not, you may have some trouble with pin-hole leaks.
What I especially like about the kick-out option is the opportunity to use thicker metal for the pan bottom.
