This would beef up the X axis section modulus and should take care of vertical forces. I am still worried about the Y axis section modulus and horizontal bending moments. Go easy backing up or stepping on the brakes.
It seems like a steel plate a couple of inches wider than the tube welded onto the top of the tube would eliminate horizontal bending moment. To reduce weight it could even be designed in a pair of triangles. Just something to make the center of that tube stiff.
