most people use 0.120 wall mild steel DOM as it is the min thickness spec'd in a few sactioning bodies, NHRA SCCA etc
4x4 guys seem to like 1.75" tubing where a car will usually use 1.5"

I made a 0.125" bumper and it held up fine but I wasnt ramming it into things

i used 2" .120" wall seamless for my cage but most cages are 1.75 or 1.5.
