OK. So the exhaust venting is assumed. The MW needs to be approx. 18" above the range.
I'd remove the existing cabinet and either cut it down as dtsman suggested, or slide it up to the ceiling if it gives you enough room

Yea, I wasn't as clear as I should have been initially. Currently we have a microwave sitting on our countertop. We also have a new in box microwave sitting in it's box in the garage. This new microwave is a regular OTR model and will be installed. then the mw on the counter will get donated. So the new mw will have venting. Thanks for the feedback. Looks like I'll be doing some carpentry.
