2wd Pickup rear bump stop - Need Help

So my rear bump stops were rusted off and missing, all that was left were the 2 broken (rusted) off bolts on either side. The rust traveled its way through the frame leaving holes in spots. Im able to weld some plates over the weak areas but am stuck on deciding what to do for new bump stops.

The ones im seeing online would require me to weld a small square tube to the frame in order to bolt them on. (Canít get inside the frame to tighten the nut otherwise)

Its on a 1990 2wd Pickup. What would you suggest is the cheapest option so that my truck has bump stops thatíll last?

Do I just weld studs onto the frame after welding a plate over the rust damage? Then mount stock style bump stops with those studs? Any better ideas?

Have spent quite a while researching online and am just stuck on what to do. And of course, Iím a newbie at all of this tinkering.

Thank you
