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...

Looks disposable to me what with 2 brackets above and 2 engine mount bolts just below.
