Default Ranger Bumper

Check out my bumper I built for my 93 ranger and let me know what you think. I started out with 5x5 1/4 wall square tube, cut it to 5'. Cut out the angles with a 4 1/2" cutoff wheel and cut plate to fit, welded it in, used 2.5x2.5 1/4 wall for the receiver in the center, and on the inside I welded 2h heavy nuts for tow hooks for lighter pulls, and hella lights, used 3" channel for the mounts and gusseted it to the bumper for extra strength, as far as mounting it I am going to take some 1/4" plate drill 3 1/2" holes through it, weld 3 pieces of 1/2" sch 80 pipe as crush sleeves that will go through the frame and weld to the opposite side of the frame rail so a 1/2" bolt can go through each, I'm thinking a 3"x4" piece and that would be welded to the frame plus the pipe to the opposite side, hopefully that will be strong enough, the stock mounts were bent from the tow hooks being mounted to it. Well what do you think of it? I am going to herculine it and then paint it a gray color.
