Front Hitch Installed

Well This is a picture of my new front hitch. It started out as a rear hitch. I cut it down. Cut a piece out of my front crossmember and welded it. Let me know what you think of it.

Looks good.

Crossmember is the only thing supporting it?

ya theres more behind the crossmember. You just cant see it from the picture. The tube from the hitch is welded behind the crossmember so I think it will be ok.
