So does anyone have a used Model 3 or model 32 with a a 1.5" die? Mater of fact, before I even look at dies, I should figure the steel I will be bending.

I am looking at building my own sliders, and then a custom bed rack for a RTT and other things. Should I go with 1.5" or 1.25"? What wall thickness?


DAMN IT.... I am SO gonna hate you after all this BlackDawg.....lmfao..
1.5" looks OK on first gens for accessories/bumpers, but is still kinda small. 1.75" is the new standard and looks much better and IMO is the minimum on second gens.

Obviously it will vary from place to place, but when buying I will assume the pipe is bought in lengths of what, 10 feet? How much (and I know this is different all over) would I GENERALLY expect to pay for each piece for both sizes? 1.5 and 1.75?

You want Round tubing, not pipe... yes theres a difference.

And for lengths, they come in 21' sticks but the supplier will cut them and charge per foot accordingly.

tube-measured OD

Right, like I said, my bad on the wording. Yep, they do have the dies for whatever I need. Right now I am still working on what I need for my planned projects, current and future. THEN I can decide what tools to get.

a 1.75" and 1.5" is all you would really need for hobby work. That's why shops only offer those sizes the dies are big bucks. Hell my 2" die for my new bender was over a grand i spent just over $4000 on dies last week.

Well yeah, but you build stuff commercially! You NEED the big stuff. lol.

Like me and my shop, I have over 40 grand in shop equipment for auto repair, not counting what was already in the shop, and I am barely started.

I've got the JD2 bender also... I've done a bit of work with it over the years all pulling on it by hand. Summer is the best when you have to wear welding gloves to use it cause it's 110+ degrees outside and I'm working in the sun.









Couple of small bumper to bumper builds...





One of the lesser known trucks I built... (not finished in this picture but you get the idea...)



Jeep stuff







Fugly bumper but I built it exactly as the kid wanted!!! I don't always like everything I've built but I try to build exactly what the friend or owner wants, not what I want...



Point being, manual benders work great, you just gotta earn it on occasion! Those 180 degree bends kinda suck! LOL

Now it's making me want to get one, I either have at home or at the shop pretty much all the tools I need for fabrication except a bender. Make as any mistakes as you want, we all do, at least I do...a lot...

Getting a tubing bender is being placed on the back burner....for now....

Me and a friend got an opportunity we couldn't pass up. A wrecked 1st gen ext cab 3.4 Pre-Runner for cheap! I have my eyes on yanking out that e-locker axle.....

I've got one of these in good shape with a 1.75" and 1.25" dies for $300. It's very mobile and easy to use will bend .120 wall DOM all day.

Logan built his roll cage with this same bender. http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...pocalypto.html

And I built all my stuff with it too
