Frame Cracks / Steering Box Brace/ Anti Sway Bar

Yesterday I meet another Jeep enthusiast and spent some time at his shop admiring his two CJ8'S. I pointed at the front frame cross member of one of his and said I have a vertical crack on mine that I will need to weld and he told me that was common on rigs with oversize tires and that after I weld it that a steering box brace should keep that from coming back. My 8 has anti sway bars on it and looking at the installation of the brace online it looks like they use the anti sway bar mounting point for the brace. My ASB has removable links on it which is a pretty nice feature so I want to keep it. What I'm wondering can I have both if I mount a brace?
