3/16 is over kill.. blahhhhhhhhhhh
Im with OOPS i used .250 and plated both sides. i also ran tube from the hanger along the frame like he did as well.
What size tube? And did you just run it along the top then weld it down?I'll prolly need to redo my shock mounts to do that. I think I should have put this in my build thread.
I dont fabricate or weld although I wish I had the know how but the fabricator I've taken my truck to has told me that he doesn't believe that thicker material is always needed to make something stronger, he said something along the lines of rather than adding all the extra mass its more important to triangulate or disperse the forces. This is coming from a pretty well respected fabricator with a lot of experience in the off road industry. So, I guess my understanding is that its not the thickness of the material that maters as much as how its applied. Maybe similar to what megaphoneman is saying.
