Default Cross-frame bracket

There is a angle iron bracket welded to the frame legs just below the mounts for the Reg/Rec on my '97.

What purpose does it serve please?

See Ronnie's Microfiche:

Frame stiffening most likely - but the chin spoilers that were available for awhile might also mount there... And perhaps the engine guards as well...
