What sizes of tube is the most common used ??
Fenders- 1"x1/8" (needs to handle a good branch whack here and there)
Side steps- 1 1/2"x3/16" and I'd weld a piece of mesh on the top for grip (I'm sure you have plans already)
Stinger- 2"x1/4"
These are only my opinion.

My front homebrew tube fenders are made from 1.5" .120 wall. I think they're proportionate.

1" is too small....Maybe for fenders but typically you use that for windshield bars and grab bars on the roll cage. My opinion is 1 1/2....it looks right, its light. Anything bigger just looks to big for the size of a wrangler.
