I planned to use the ones from TKH (linked above), but ended up getting some from BESRK here on the forum. Just be sure you realize that the YJ one's weld on not bolt on like the TJ ones most places have.

I do realize that I have to weld them to the frame. Unable to find any pictures, I was unsure how they would fit with the shackle so close to the end of the frame,the links above have solved that. Also, do they go outside or inside the frame rails?

Outside. And you might want to reinforce the the rear of the mounting points with at least 3/16" plate.

I already have 1/4" channel going across the back sandwiched between the bumper and the cross member. Would 3/16" with a gusset be enough for the frame tie? The thk fab product has a hole for the frame side, do I need to drill the frame or is welding the bracket enough?

No need to drill, just weld'em on.
