Needing DOM, Please help.

I've exhausted my options localy...mainly, I'm not paying $30 for two pieces of DOM that's less than a foot long.

If anybody has some 2 1/2 OD 1/4 wall six inches long and another pieces of 2" OD 3/16 or 1/4 wall at the same length lying around looking for a new home let me know.

I'm building my own bumper and I'm at a stand still until I get these few pieces.

Throw me a price and I'll talk with you.


Thanks
Jeremy

Jeremy,
I just paid $150 (plus shipping) for a 6ft piece of 2.75"x.500....


I think I've got...

2"x1/4" wall DOM

2.5"x 3/8" wall DOM

2.75"x 1/2" wall DOM

and a few sticks of 1.75"x.120" DOM


Can you use any of the above? If so, I can let you get it for what I pay plus shipping... still looking at about $20-$25 a foot (except for the 2" and 1.75")

Just curious.. what are you going to use them for in the bumper?

Is the DOM absolutely necessary? HREW can be had for much cheaper and in most cases, works just as well. I'd really only look for DOM if I were building a cage.

Well, you're probably right on the HREW. I've been following the sticky in this section building my own tire carrier. It called for DOM so I just went with it. If I don't have a lead on some DOM tomorrow...I'll shift my dirrection.

HREW will work fine, just be sure to set it up so the seams are away from the greatest stresses.
