Got some stainless pipe, what to do with?
 
So I scored some FREE stainless pipe, 1.5" dia Sch 40 (0.145"), 316 stainless, and some 1" sch 40 (0.133") as well, about 25' of the 1.5" and 20' of the 1". I also have some 2" Sch 80 (very thick), about 20' as well. So what should I do with it? I have no roll cage in the Scrambler, nor a brush guard. Any ideas? I have a 220V Millermatic 185, which will weld stainless, I've done it before and have a small spool of stainless wire. It's all straight, no bends.

Go for the roll cage, just save enough to make one for my YJ too!

stainless is very hard to bend! but, you can buy weld-in elbows, i would try and find some "long-radius" ones, they'll probably look better. go for the cage! matt

It would make some cool bumpers and nerf bars. Would not have to worry about bends, could always cut and weld it at angles if you wanted and would not have to worry too much about strength (like in a roll cage). Post some pics when you get it worked out.
