My comments relate to the actual extra mounting. As I haven't seen the bumper or the structure it is bolted to, I wont comment on that.
Firstly I would use flanged bolts mounted head down. If you hit a rock flanged bolts will shrug off the blow whereas a nut with protruding bolt thread will take damage. The clamping to the crossmember requires spacer tubes to allow a decent amount of tightening without deformation.

That bumper has also been rammed in to obstacles a number of times and hasn't budged one millimeter.

Des Sol had a pro make the video. 

yes I agree. I am very happy with the bumper. solid and very strong. the extra plate is definately not required. merely added it as my previous winchplate had it.

But lets give credit where its due. The dessol bumper is one mean bumper. thoroughly designed and tested. no regrets

Flanged bolts aren't necessary. That lot is all covered up by a sturdy crash plate.

SAXJ,
indeed. that crach plate is solid steel plate. it will need proper "crash" to just put a little dent in it. :)

Added inside rack for easy to reah stuff. mostly maybe a jacket, blanket or some soft stuff.

also cant be seen from outside, unless you bend down and lookup to ceiling. so nice out the way of prying eyes.

also no obstruction at all using rear view mirror. you dont even see the rack.

very well designed and very very happy.

2mm Cold Rolled Steel.

Stainless Steel Hardware Included.

“Quick Release” Design for easy removal.

Textured Black Powder coating.

16.5 cm from roof lining to base of rack

Recommended load limit 8.5 kg.

Slotted bracket design to allow rack position adjustment.

If you have side airbags for rear passengers, you may like to look at this product.

No side bags on mine as it is a 3 and I would have to modify I'm sure.
