I hope we've all learned here that you don't just put it in reverse and gun it.
Again, I don't see why you want to really re-enforce more than what a front hitch will do. If you re-enforce it too much and you do try to pull something (god forbid you act like the idiot in the video) you WANT the hitch the rip out before you DO any frame damage.
The ONLY benefit i see from re-enforcing the front of the frame, is better crunching in an accident and i don't think anyone here plans on getting in an accident.
