    Not that I have any experience with roll cages, but I would not go cheap unless the guy has the proof of knowledge to back it up.

    Would you buy a hand made bullet proof vest off "some guy" on Craigslist if you're going into combat? Odds are not, so would you want to do it with this?

    Roll cage.

    $350 is not enough for just the metal involved in the cage.

    3.5" tubes may work for a headache rack. Like this:

    But not for a full roll cage that is meant to protect your life in a high speed roll over. Like this:

    3.5" tubing is huuuuge, 1.75 to 2 should be more than strong enough. Also, don't spend 350 on a cage, materials alone should cost more than that

    Spend your money at a reputable shop, just my opinion but I wouldn't spend all this money to make my truck go faster, jump higher, and take anything I can throw at it just to go cheap on the one part that may keep me alive during all these said activities. Just my .02
