i could see using the torch to cut some, although it leaves a really rough cut that will require cleaning up afterwards but you'll be better off using an actual welder to weld versus a torch.. and as far as starting off your best bet for cutting and not having to clean it up afterwards is a grinder with a cut off wheel. that will leave a nice clean cut for you (provided you can keep it going straight)

i would recommend getting a good welder first. i have a lincoln 180 that has been an awesome machine, very capable

mig is plenty strong if done right... the thing with any weld type is it all depends on the capabilities of the operator... you can have the best welder in the world but if you don't know how to work it its just a big paper weight... and remember practice makes... well better alteast

I used to do some metal fab (unfortunately no truck stuff). I only used a torch for cutting and heating steel for bending. I'd go for a good wire fed welder first. The arc welders are good to learn on, but unless you're going to welding on farm equipment, I'd go with a wire fed welder, chop saw and angle grinder.

I would recommend not getting a stick welder, Save some money and pick up a mig welder. If you can afford a 220v mig go that route if not you can get buy with a 110v welder. Benders can add up really fast. But get yourself a nice grinder,drill, vise. You can make a harborfreight notcher work by shimming it or buy a nice one like a jd2 or something.
