I've been building my cage for the past 2 months.


If you don't know how to bend tubing it will take you a while...... But, I'm using 1 1/2 X .095 mild steel. I read a that if your car is over 2000lbs. to use .120 tubing. I don't know how much mine will weigh but all the tubing I have on it is sure making it heavy....

As for the chromoly I hear it is very $$$$$$$ and it is hard to work with.

Hope this helps, Rob

Chromoly will cost more upfront buying it raw, then afterward you'll need to stressrelieve every weld. But it is worth the work and money for the strength required for trophy trucks and such, a baja is light enough that I wouldn't even worry about a chromoly frame.
