Strength of rear cross member
Been a while since I've posted here. The bumper that I fabed up from mostly your design is doing fine but I have a question about how to strengthen up the rear cross member. I recently tried to use a hitch mount dirt bike carrier on my bumper. After putting the dirt bike up on the carrier I decided to jump up and down on the carrier a little bit. Boy, I found out that this ***** is not strong enough to use a carrier on. The bumper mount looks plenty strong but the rear cross member is not going to cut it. What do you think?
PS - I do have corner braces on it but it seems as though the gauge metal used for the cross member just isn't good.
