Default Frame Stiffener and Drop Bracket

Hi I want to add center frame stiffeners to my XJ. I have control arm drop brackets already, see photo.
I am looking at Hooligan OffRoad as the vendor for the frame stiffeners, How should I deal with my drop bracket? trim the bottom of the stiffener away to clear the drop bracket?

Thanks!

I did my stiffeners last year. Here is a link to my writeup. https://www.cherokeetalk.com/forum/#/topics/72713
Personally, I would cut the drop bracket and weld it to the stiffeners. If you ever go long arm you will have to cut the factory brackets out anyhow.

the only way I can see to combine those is to do some cutting and welding. And yes, the best way would be to weld the drop brackets on the stiffeners.
