1973 cj5 nerf bars

I made some homemade nerf 24" outside dimensions and bolted them to the frame. The problem I have is the frame flexes a lot. I thought about putting something in the channel to tie the top and bottom together but brake line are there. Any ideas? No welding experience.

The 73 frame is c-channel, so that probably why it's flexing. I would look at boxing it in
