Whether you need to notch or not depends on how wide of a 14 bolt you have and the offset of the H1s. You are just going to have to roll it under and see. You will have options though. Most aftermarket wheels have a smaller offset then the H1s so that could be something to fall back on. You might only need to notch it a little bit. There are also "back half" kits to move the rear frame rails in tighter under the tub.

I did mine with the ford towers as well. Ive had 3 different sets of rims on my yj. With the first set of rims the tires would barely rub the shock body at full flex on the passenger side. It could have been fixed by notching the frame, bumpstop adjustment, or different rims. I just changed my rims because I wasn't a big fan of the fake beadlocks anyway. My guess is with H2s you will rub if you dont sink the towers into the frame a little.
