I would get  4" wide 3/8" or 1/2" strips that come 20ft long. For most of the straight parts on the frame thats all you'll need. 1.) less cutting 2.) less waste 3.) cheaper

My monte is T-top and I want to get it wrapped for at least a 2 pump 6 battery set up would 1/4 stress point reinforcement hold up on it? I'm not really into 3 wheeling and hopping but I know me and I will at least try a couple of times and I don't want my car to fold up b/c its a nice car and I hate to hear people say "u fucked up a nice car with them damn hydraulics."

i would just walk out to your frame and take a tape measure and order the sizes of stips for each side then you will save alot on waste and cash.

plus have the frame sand blasted it is much eisier to weld to then fighting the rust.

Or just grind down the areas your gonna weld at and then send the final product out to sandblast and come back done. Then you can paint the whole thing to match or whatever.

the reason is steal is high is because of monopoly.    china is one of the country that sales alot of steal to the US  and  in the USA the steel company are leaving to china and mexico and other contries because of pollution laws and because of labor $  in other countries it cost about $1 a day for a worker and in the USA $200
so you know why this steel is high.  I work on a steel supplier and the steel comes in container and we put a stamp saying made in the USA

And, dot forget the tariffs that have been imposed to try to protect Domestic manufacturers from consumers buying cheaper imported steel. The real problem is, American steel will be expensive until all the factories are updated, because they are out of date and inefficient now...
