what is this strap on the frame?

We have these on both sides of our frame. What are they, do we need to keep them?

Yes, you need them. I have a '67 Overlander and that is where the external skins that curve under the frame are attached. Should be some up front too. Mine are rusted out and need to be replaced.

I think the front fell out from rust. These two were there before we took the shell off. There was a long strap going front to back too.

I'm with Mike they are an anchor point for attaching the skin. Just had mine replaced yesterday - used 1/8"x 2" strips. I have uploaded a scaled drawing that shows where they are on my frame. '67 Safari. If it would help you look it up by my username or I'll send you a copy when I get to my desk tomorrow. Would post but don't have the image in my phone.

Great job there, Tentmaker!

I believe that is correct use for the 'strap'.. it is also a handy location for a 'support' under a utility box should you want to add storage there...

That helps a LOT. ours doesn't go that far front to back, looks like some fell off or was removed. Do you think it would work if we bolted some on before we permanent ly attached the floor? Our floor is "floating" on the frame right now. Welding would be a big big pain. Is it necessary?
