I'm gonna chime in here and say DOM is a unneeded expense.  Priced average of four hundred percent more,  its stronger but how critical is that extra strength when a well designed and built cage is way stronger than needed with HREW. I've had more rolls than anybody I know and have used nothing but HREW on my cage and the orange RTI ramp which I built just like I'd build a cage. I'm not hating on those with DOM,  we just don't want you to get discouraged from your build. -tg-

I agree with Travis if a cage is designed poorly it doesn't matter what it's made out of.  I know all of the bumpers and sliders I build, along with my cage are HREW and they have held up great over the years.

HREW vote here as well. I have seen Travis's cage hold up well to rollover.Marlin Crawler builds lots of his stuff with HREW, and his company has a good rep.

I like to buy my sticks at Wheeler (I know, right?) on west Kearney. At just over a dollar a foot for 1.5x0.090, you can afford to goof up on a few bends

Wheelers also has some odd size Hrew for cheap.  I use quite a bit of their 1 7/8" .120 wall because I can bend it with a harbor freight pipe bender and a 1 1/4" pipe die.  Works great if you are on a budget.

If you don't want you're exo all bent to hell after a few tree smacks, buy DOM. Hrew will dent pretty easy. Yes it'll save you in a roll but if you want superior strength DOM it is. Buy it from Lake Steel in Camdenton. Well worth the drive.. buying it in Springfield will cost you 3 or 4 times as much as if you go to Lake Steel. I paid 2.70/ft for DOM from them when I built my cage in the 1ton. I built the cage in my Cherokee out of Hrew and paid 1.10 a foot for it, but didn't really care if I smacked a tree and dented it so I went cheap on it. So if you care whether it dents and look like crap after a few wheeling mishaps, then go DOM if not go HREW; as far as integrity in a roll. Either one will work for 4 wheeling.. as for Racing applications you would be silly to put HREW in that.
