    For what, bending pipe? Works great from what I hear. What are ya up to, replacing the plumbing in your house?

    Hope ya ain't planning on using pipe on your rig. It ain't worthy, except for a few notable exceptions but definately not for a roll cage. For that, you use stuff like DOM and Chrome Moly tubing and you don't bend that stuff in a friggin pipe bender.

    Pipe and tube are measured differently and the pipe bender in most cases will kink the tube.

    I found this one it will work for anything you wanna do on your truck with chromoly and anything for like a roll cage what ever its pretty cheap the whole thing with die sets is probably gonna run ya like 6 to 7 hundred bucks which is pretty good cause you can bend any size you want basically and any angle

    my dad has one just like that, made a roll cage for his dirt track race car out of it and I must say it has been rolled and did survive just fine. Had to replace 2 tubes but definetally kept the roof which is just gutted sheetmetal from collapsing on him.

    There's pipe and there's tube, they are measured differently, one OD the other ID not to mention the materials is a lot different. Piped sized tubing huh? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Nah, I probably know what you mean, using pipe as bumpers and rock sliders. FRIZZLEFRY runs bumpers and sliders out of pipe, don't remember exactly what, but I've seen him bash the you know what out of them and haven't heard or seen anything bad.
