now i think there's simpler stuff you could build at home.

u dont have to have a tube bender and you dont have to know angles i have seen really good stuff built in the shop and i have even done about 5 jeeps myself with out them. u just need to think outside the box and you need to be able to weld good.

i have seen it done by cutting square tubing down the middle and bending it by hand into the angle desired then welding the cuts back together. or you can pre cut angles so that the square tubing will, after all the ANGLES ARE WELDED IN will bend the way you want it. a bender is nice but is not a must.
