Step 4

Select the object called "master" open the constraint options, then use the pipette to choose the object that will be used for soil detection, then select the bone on the ground and perform the same procedure, repeat this for the other seven contact bones, as shown in the figure.


Step 5

Select the frame of the truck and related to the bone called " Chassis ".

    I think that everything can be improved that's why I only use four stars, but this rig is really incredible, there are many options to get a realistic animation.
