1/4" wall is a bit overkill anyway. Your frame is only 3/16". Plus that is boxed where your frame isn't. No it won't be as strong as 1/4" wall, obviously, but so long as the fabrication is really good ... sure it will work.

i have a toyota so the frame is boxed, but i think i will go that way, just wanted to do something a little different, not that using box tubing is "different" but you get the picture, plus its cheaper than buying a notch

i always used 2x4 1/8" wall for my box notches. its way strong enough man.

hey I just used 2x3 tubing 3/16" wall ...seems to be good for me ...but I had to for crappy reasons ...but I agree the 1/4" would be a bit of overkill ..and im not sure of the 1.5" ...I would personally choose 2"

Maybe not. Never took a close look, I was just going off what I had heard. Could very well be wrong. Either way, his concern about not using 1/4" is still irrelevant and that's the point I was making.

i'm wanting to do the 1.5 x 3 3/16" wall, would it be hard to make your own notch? I personally think it would be easier than welding an 8pc together but that is just me
