    hey guys im building and rops system for my bad boy lightning.im doing it at school and my stuff was due today but anyway... lol

    i need some measurements and detailed pictures if any of you guys have them mounted on your bad boys. i have a pretty good idea of how im going to make it just wanted to see the real thing.

    how thick is the tube? 1/8 seems kind of thin to me, i could use 1/4 but thats one mean roll bar.

    thanks alot guys,

    What type of metal? 1.5" X .120" wall is fine for up to 1500 lbs. 1.75" X .120" for up to 2000 lbs. And 2.25" X .120" for 2500 and better. Even would meet race requirements of some groups.
