Curious as to what kind of tubing i need. I know it is 1/2 inch tubing but is that inside diameter or OD? Also what gauge steel are people generally using to brace their frames with? I was thinking 1/4 inch?

I.D. will be the size of the bolts, 1/4" will work, I like thicker though:flipoff2:

1/4" should be fine. Do both sides and never worry about your box tearing up the frame.

Here's a picture of mine. I used 1/4" plate then boxed it all in with 1/4" and used a piece if 1/2" pipe to sleeve the holes for the 3 bolts. It's not quite as big as the previous picture but I think it will work o.k.
