?? tub anchor point - needed??

I've posted a pix of this anchor in the tub of my D90.
Why is it there? It is heavey duty - though mine is rusting. I am playing with a speaker box set up and want to know if I should work around this or not. Underside of the D90 seems to show this not as a structural element.

It's the anchor point for the seatbelt retractor reel.

That can be taken out - there's nothing structural about it. The rollcage hoop bolts to that exposed tube which goes down through the body and attaches to the rear crossmember with the same bolts that secure the rear step bumper. It will take but a few minutes to remove.

Excellent. Now my homemade speaker boxes can be tweeked and installed.
Plus, one more rusty item into the big D-90 back-up bin.
I'll post pix once in.
