Home made drop brackets

so i was gonna buy an xtra-10 but the guy sold it already. So im gonna make home made drop brackets instead. I have a 95 polaris xcr 600 with 1 inch rip saw track 121. I wanna make home made drop brackets to get a little more hight, what kind of metal should i use? should i use bolts or big ol rivits is what im thinkin just put some washers on the back. if you could think of anythin else that will help me thank you! and im doing this to get more travel hight cause my heat exchangers are on the running bored and i really dont wanna smash it off a rock on trails or find a hidden rock under snow.
heres a picture for any help with this thread

I used steel on my ac drilled all the rivets out made a plate that exteded 2 inches lower layed the plate up there marked it were the existing rivet holes were drilled the plate and riveted it in the existing hole. I also welded a plate to that that layed flush up against the bottom of the footwell and then riveted that plate to the fotwell as well little added support and also strengthened the foot well
