    Got chance to pick up some 3" angle at 3/16" thick. Wondering since I'm still in need of building a ramp for my trailer I reburnished (never had one) that It would be super strong with 3" instead of 2"..but also wondering will it be way heavy? It does only need to be 4' tall by 6' wide as trailer uses drop axles and is only 8-10 inches off ground. I can get (if still there) 40' for $75! thats a steal for steel ( sorry on the pun) but really is for that much. Thanks
