I'd hope so, because I paid a little less than that for a stick of 1.75x1.20 DOM a few months ago. That would shoot down the budget aspect of using pipe.

no. 1.75x.120 DOM supported to the diff cover is barely enough. One tube over the top without support is going to fail.

Buy DOM for critical areas, it's not much more.
