Default Why is this 03 engine cradle brace so obcure?

I have searched parts diagrams, parts listings, salvage sites, everything I could think of and it took me a week just to figure out what this part was called. I had started to think it was in witness protection. The front drivers side enine cradle brace got bent on my son's 03 2.4LE and today we just removed it and hammered it out in the shop to match the other side as close as possible and then reinstalled it. It came out well. Even searching for pictures of it with its actual name this is the only pic I found and it was to an expired Ebay auction. Then I realized how expensive it is and was glad I decided to take the hammer to it. My question is why is it so obscure?

Need to look in the right spot.

The part is shown the Toyota service manual. Called Frame Side Rail Plate Sub-Assy LH. P/N 51036-33011, price around $50.
