We have one of these:
Hydraulic Pipe & Tube Bender - 12 Ton

Takes a little practice and we had to fabricate a stand for it out of some rebar, but we have built several bumpers and other odds and ends with it.

What have we got?
We have one heavily armed Recreational Vehicle

I have one of the HF pipe benders also. Not precision, but you can make decent bends. BUT don't think you can bend TUBE in the pipe bender. Tube is OD measured and pipe is ID measured. There are tricks (wet sand, etc.) that will make some tube bends in a pipe bender, but you really need a quality set of dies and a real tube bender for good roll bar type bends. Check my project page below. The front bumber is pipe the roll bar and rocker guards are tube.

I have the jd2 model 32 bender with a homemade hydraulic cylinder, bends a full 180 in one full stroke of the cylinder. bends pipes and tubes excellent. my model 32 is just a beefier version of model 3, works the same tho. i highly recomend it.
