stress fractures on rear bumper mounts

It seems that my homemade rear bumper was heavier than I thought. The bumper started sagging due to stress fractures around the 8 bolt holes. What should I do to fix and reinforce the bumper mount area? I plan on getting a swing away tire carrier soon. Do most of those mount using more than the stock 8 bolts? After it is fixed, I want a tire carrier that has additional reinforcements to keep the thing from bending the bumper mount area. Thanks.
