Frame Narrow on a CJ

So I am getting ready to narrow the rear frame on a CJ to clear some new King Coil Shocks. 2 pictures are supplied, one is the stock configuration and the other is the after condition. As you will see, I have a roll cage tied into the current frame. The plan is to cut the frame just before the cross member with the body mounts. I am going to weld 2x3 box tubing across the frame and add tabs for the body mounts. I have a rear bumper that I would like to retain so I was going to butt weld 2" tubing between the new cross member and rear bumper. I would then gusset the existing roll cage back to the tube. Anyone have a better idea?

Since I have to buy a stick of 2x3, I might just run 2x3 box from the new cross member to the bumper. It would be easier to weld and gusset.
