I was looking at it more today and decided that I was going to add some side braces to it... at like a 45 angle so its more rigid and it will give me a place to mount the winch plug.

Yeah, I'd add vertical plate from the back of the receiver tube out to the sides. Seems all the structure is currently in a single plane which may cause problems with any off-center pulls, especially if a winch is hanging out the front of the tube (which will increase leverage on off-center pulls).
