Seems like something like this would work:

7" in diameter, 35 hp / 82 lb-ft. Comes with the controller. The logical place for the controller is in the truck with the battery.

Some of the belt driven 48V hybrid motors might work as well for junkyard prices.

It really depends on what the OP wants his hybrid to do. Is this hybrid system for low speed parking lot speeds and boosting performance or is he looking to run in a full EV mode and road speeds?

Still seems simpler than trying to make a RAV4 motor physically fit and then the programming hassle of trying to work with a 2 motor / electric differential motor unit.
