chassis looks great. but for the amount of abuse these will see why HREW and not DOM tube. maybe im mistaken. but it looks like hrew in some spots.

Yes there is a mix of tubing hrew and dom to keep cost down. BUT the lower frame rail,shock hopes,skidrail and A pillar is all 3/16 or 188 wall dom. Steel supplier explained to me that the only diffrence is tighter tolerence on wall thickness. So i think we are ok using the 120 wall hrew , just my opp
