Patrick, this may only add weight, but do you think that it would help to drill out a hole in the front pumkin cross piece where the bolts go and weld in a section of pipe. The pipe would be flush top and bottom, also it would be welded top and bottom. So the cross piece would hold it steady, but never see compression. The bolts would just fit in the pipe. Just thinking that now you could tighten the pumpkin untill the bolts break without any stress on the parts.

I do see that the cross piece is so thick that this might be overkill.
