Best tube metal thickness for tube bumper

I have the plans figured out but I just need a few key points of advice.

What is the most common tube metal in a common tube bumper company?
-Wall Thickness: 1/8th,
-Type of Metal: DOM, Seam-weld, rolled, etc.
-Overall Diameter: 1.5", 2"

Thanks! I'll pull up my plans later. Gotta find my camera and clean up my chicken scratch

Probably the most common would be something like .120 wall DOM for a bumper.
