Anyone got a line on cheap or low cost 1.5" x .25" DOM tubing?  I don't know for sure how much I need yet, I'm thinking maybe 10' total in variations of about 3' sections.  I just hate ordering it up somewhere and paying the mark up on the mark up deal.

So I'll be doing the steering (only need a draglink) and an anti-wrap bar in the back.  I've got everything but tubing for that, including a 7/8-14x3/4 heim.  The insert that came with it fits a 1 1/2 ID tube but that seems like it would be HUGE for a wrap bar.  I don't know how thick a tube I really need for a wrap bar though.  So I looked and can get an 7/8-14 inserts from WFO in 1", 1 1/16" and 1.25" ID tubing.  I just figured .25, 1.5 would be the easiest to find.  So really if I can get the wrap bar handled I can switch gears for the steering cause I don't already have parts for that etc..

Properly built 1.5 .120 wall should take care of an anti wrap bar.  That would take the 1.25 tube adapter.  Let me know. Mark

That would be awesome.  I'm going to be down that way Friday (around noon or maybe before), but working nights I won't have much time down there and got to get back to go to work.  We can do some other time if that doesn't work too.
