Default Front crossmember/Bumper build. Any advice?

so heres what i started today out of boredom
http://community.webshots.com/album/546982105chkVFa

i cut then ground the frame rails so that the curved ends of the tube can fit snug, and welded all around. then capped it off and added 1 triangular gusset on each side of the inner frame rails. is there anyother support/strength i need? (keeping in mind that this will hold a tube bumper and a winch in the near future) any other suggestions?

thanks
