what ever stiffener you choose...

coat the frame rail and back side of the stiffener with a weld through primer. then after you rosette weld and stitch weld, go back with a body seam sealer and run a bead around the perimeter of the frame stiffeners. thats about the best you can do. itll last longer than the jeep.
