Building a full cage in my 4 door Tacoma and need more steel to make grab handles, gussets and seat mounts. Will 1" .095 work good for all of that? Specifically referring to seat mounts. Trying to keep the weight down where I can since the truck is on 1 tons and 40" tires already and the little V6 needs all the help it can get lol.

The blue tape will be 1.5" .095 wall, not 1".

Seat tubes are holding the entirety of your weight over 4 pressure points. Seat frames have your weight spread over however many square inches of foam and wire. I wouldn't use that logic for justifying thin wall tube.

Thanks gents. .095 is .1lb per foot lighter than .120. Won't be enough to make any kind of difference in weight but I'd venture to say .095 would be strong enough too. Its only .0125 thinner per side. My PRP seat sliders are even smaller on the OD, not sure on thickness.
