Default What tube to get?N.S.F.W.

I am getting ready to build long arms for my zj and I am about to place an order for the tube. I just use it for trail riding and beer runs with a occasional silver lakes trip. What diameter and wall thickness would best suit my needs for the arms themselves?

I have enough tube to do at least 2 links, probably enough tube to do all of it but not 100% sure. and i have one of each right and left hand 7/8 18 (one ton TRE)tube adapters, enough for one. I also have the the taper reamer if you wanna go that rout.

i think you would need to get 2 of each hand besides the two i have.
