A question on rollbars

I have been playing with the idea of building my own rollbars for my 72 Commando. Is there a reason why most of the rollbars I see are made from tube steel other then easy bending? Is there a problem with using square tube steel and just welding all the joints? How about design? What are safe designs for rollbars? This is definitely going to be a through-floor frame mount rollbar. Thanks for your time.

Re: A question on rollbars

hi zetlin,i am not on this board often[samurai]but a few weeks back there was a lot of info on rollbars.i have made square roll bars before,and the biggest thing you can do is weld a plate over your joints.not that your not a great welder,but it does make for a strong joint.i used 1/4"wall, 2 to 3 inch square.mostly military trucks,good luck,RR
