Fabricating a Roll Cage

Hey y'all I want to fabricate a Roll Cage for my CJ7 and need to know what grade steel I should use for the cage.

I would use 1 3/4 " or 2" .120 wall on all structural, main hoop and corner gussets.Mine is 1 3/4" and I used 1 1/2" on filler bars some .095 wall to save some $ where I could.
If your building a full cage I would go 1 3/4 but if you build a cage w no front hoop like old school style I would use 2".To make it really safe try to tie it to the frame in 2 or 3 places on each side.

And try and use DOM tubing, so there is no seam to cause a weak spot.
