That Tube

On Tj / LJ What purpose does the Tube at the front of the frame serve? Is it just simple bracing or is it round to prevent frame twist, since it's only a couple inches in front or the torsion bar?? Can it be removed and the frame braced another way, or should it stay as is?

It's just the front frame crossmember.
hacck welder smokin Gonna ask dealer, when I get it back from shop tommorow. If thats what they call it,it might just have to go. The fab guys wanna cut it out plate and gusset across the bottom of the frame to drop the winch in. to protect it better and a cosmetic thing.
The winch plate would make a good replacement for that xmember. Hack it off!
