That's what I was thinking on the receiver, but the side bracing is a bonus! Now I have to find a welder willing to do it without a liability panic issue.

After some discussion, the thought was by extending the 1" tube on the side and adding the gusset that we would spread the stress over a larger area, negating any potential frame issues.

That looks like it will work. What do you plan on towing?
