new question to this thread......
Will 1.75 tube be ok for my truck, or should I go with 2" for the main hoops ?
The truck is a fullsize ramcharger (hence my screen name), and will most likely weigh in around 6000 lb when done. it weighs 5200 right now, with only a 6 pt bar and 1/2 ton axles, as well as a SB engine, & stock bumpers.
A BB, 1 ton or rockwell axles, and larger tires, as well as a full cage are planned.
I have a protools 105 HD bender, and will be converting it to hydraulic once I get the stand built. I currently have a 1.75 x 6 clr die, and if I can safely use 1.75, I'd like to do it. If not, I'll just get another die for the 2".
