Remove Plate Inside Rear Frame (passenger side, not nutstrip)

I have a small plate inside the passenger side frame, where the nutstrip goes. I'm using FST nutstrips and they don't have a raised area to go over this plate, making the strip impossible to install. Any ideas how to remove the plate? It is small, about 8" from the opening in the rear. It appears to be welded. The drivers side is flat, no plate. The plate is right above where the factory exhaust mount studs go up into the frame. I tried a hammer/chissel from the rear access hole, no dice.

I'd like to use these nutstrips as they are beef (1/4"). But, this is a problem as the strip won't lay flat in the frame, it seesaw's, making the bolts impossible to start.

Every good nutstrip I've seen has a hump for this just like the factory and jcr I wouldn't try to take that piece out I'm sure it's there for a reason

Ordered a pair of JCRs. Not worth the effort.
