What are you using the 1 3/4 .250 for on your cage? Why do you need 700# worth of 3/4" plastic for the body? It seems like you are trying so hard to make this thing indestructible that you are actually going backwards. The less weight you have the less stress on all your components. Your thought process; I need to beef up the body to prevent damage, wow that is heavy I need bigger components to handle the weight, Damn now that shit weighs more I need to beef up the body a bit more, Damn now I need bigger axles to handle the extra weight, exc..... Stop thinking like an engineer and spend some time going to offroad parks and competitions and check out the rigs that work. You think waaaaay to much!
