Default jd2 die what size?

My girlfried got me a jd2 model 3 bender for my birthday. My problem is I am only going to be able to buy 1, 180* die. What size should i get for a first die?

My plans are to build a cage and bumpers for my 84k20 truggyish project.

Just wanted to know what you guys would say your most used die size is for those types of projects

thanks

1" is a popular size for roll cages, and from what I've heard 180 is the only way to go.

I have a 1.5"/4.5" 180* and 1.75/5.5 180* for model 32. Great dies for cages and bumpers and stuff

Another vote for 1.75. That's what I just bought.
