Chassis Bracing

Hey everyone, first actual post and I was looking for some insight! So I just got my 2006 X and I'm putting together a list of mods I am planning on doing to the car in the future and I was wondering if chassis bracing has its place on a fozzy being built for trails or if I should leave that to the people who do autox. I'm not terribly familiar with this chassis yet, but I did move from a charger that I had built for time attack, so having stock suspension is a stark difference from what I'm used to (on an SUV no less). I know I should take it out and get used to it to see what I think it needs, but I was wondering if anyone knew of any must have chassis bracing for these cars when tackling trails!

Prob don't need to stiffen the chassis for trail runs. A lot of folks unbolt their sway bars when on bumpier stuff, air down tires etc so I do not see the benefit to a stiffer chassis off the tarmac.

I'm thinking more flex is better off-road ;-)

That's what I figured! I just wanted to make sure there weren't any glaring issues that needed to be addressed! Thanks :)
