Xj unibody reinforcement trailer receiver

Hey I was just wondering if there was anyone on here with an XJ that has done any fabrication to the unibody frame at the back to strengthen for pulling? I am wondering what I can do to make mine stronger and more durable. 2 out of the 6 bolts (front 2) are separating from the frame. I can get pics to better describe myself.

if you are having issues with this there are atleast 1 if not 2 things going on. Either your unibody is starting to rust making it weaker, or you are towing beyond the jeeps capability. If it is the latter, i would suggest a different vehicle all together rated to tow what you want with it. If it is the former, then re-enforcement would be an acceptable solution IMO.
