Can't really see every thing on the right side. I guess it is to cut the torque of the steering in half,so the driver won't have to work so hard Like a helping hand.  Or like a damper to absorbed the bumps.

There is a word I'm looking for can't find it and can't spell it.

Would like to know too.

Thank you, Friends!

Kind a little "How To":

Little triangles to connect crosmembers and subframe

By the way, I often used right angles. For example red marked one to cover crossmembers, and green one acts as a guide for side walls

When I assembled the frame, I've forgot that dumpers don't have tail crossmember. Insted it has right angle. So I was have to tear off crossmember and cut out a piece of frame.

Here are profiles I used for dump hinge

And here what it turned out

And finally: hydro reservoir and hinge set up for hydraulic ram

All I needed: right angle and sheet styrene
