Default Corner guard questions/thoughts

Do you feel that the corner guards people have been putting on their Jeeps need to be made out of 3/16? I would think 1/8 would be more than sufficient considering most people have nothing on and the tub doesnt get that damaged except down real low on the corner when coming off a ledge. Also, would being made from 3/16 aluminium be more or less of a consideration in your purchase? I am going to make a set for myself after trying to buy a set but have been unsuccessful. Most are made in cali (shipping) or nobody has them in stock, which makes it clear nobody makes them in house, they just have them made somewhere. I have the tools to do it but kinda figured it would be easier to buy rather make considering my time and almost a full sheet of steel. Let alone trying to figure out the bend needed to make everything still line up after being cut. Please discuss.
