Skid plates generally assist in gliding over obstacles...don't think I've ever seen one act as frame bracing...but anything is possible...

Looks like there is some skid plating. Looks like it took a pretty hard hit too. Not enough to break a frame in my mind though.

Frame welded - Simple addition - Better than factory.
