Try here http://www.ryerson.com/locations/index.asp that's not a common size so if you do find it it'll most likely be pretty high.

If not.. Speedymetals.com has 2.5"x5" (3/16" wall) tube.. you could trim off 1" of height and weld a cap on it to make it 4" tall..

Metalsforasteel.com has 2.5"X4" in 11 guage and 3/16 thicknesses. I have used them before, they ship out of northern ky (im in Louisville so its near me), and their prices are better than most other online places. Of course its not as good as local.
