Actually, the way it is gusseted (ony 1/2 way down the tab), one solid pull from the D rings on a 45 degree angle will bend the mounting tabs where the tabs meet the end of the frame

The better way to gusset it would be to move the gussets to the outside part of the frame, and run the gussets the full length of the tab (from the bumper to past where it bolts to the frame. That way, the entire tab will be strong in all 3 dimensions from the point it bolts to the frame all the way to the D ring.
