Been reading old threads for a few hours now... if this has been dredged up before just point me in the right direction.

All I am wondering is what thickness/size of tubing is everyone using for your tube frame, particularly a rear tube frame (I am retaining my cab and stock frame from the cab forward). I want it to be able to take some good hard impacts.

Thanks. :D

on my buddie s rig .120 wall been holding up fine and that was HREW weve also done chromoly in the same thickness and it works really well.

You'll probably get different responses so match an answer to a picture of what you plan on doing. If you plan on using their basic design use their tube thickness, it always works to copy

Bump.

Using my own design. Kind of like Dustin Emmick's kind of like Scott Ellinger's it has yet to be completely hashed out.

So booger you don't think that .120 can take a bonk from a rock?

yeah 120 is kool, lots of competion rigs outta 120, i just like schedule 40 cause it takes a hit better than tube and i dont get a new tube chassis every season...mines all 1.75 120 DOM/hrew on the inner bracing and crossbars...

well, some guys use 13/4"x120 wall for the major frame and roll cage, then go to 1.5 x 90wall for other stuff like braces or such,does make a difference in weight depending on amount of tubeing used.
