[stupid] if you can build it yourself, if not, get one by a reputable company(poision spider kicks ass) or have someone build you one.

Thanks Todd thats quite an offer,seeing as I've only met you once.A couple friends and myself threw in for a tube bender,so we may break it in.Going to price out some tubing and see what I'm looking at.Probably going to do it in my driveway or somewhere local,but for sure if I need a pointer I'll call.Stopped by Jim's(fourplay)today and his jeep looks like it's coming along,be nice to wheel with him for a change,I don't think Jim and I have actually" wheeled" together yet.

A friend is using some 1 1/2 heavy wall tube that he gets for $60 a 20 foot length that is what i am going to use for the new cruiser really strong and small so you can put in tighter areas [36]

Avctually we don't care, but if ya were to die it kinda fucks up an area for us to wheel in. Then we have a bunch of useless threads about saftey and shit. So to avoid all the drama put a cage in.
