see what kinda dies he has for his bender. when i did my role cage i bought a bunch of 2 inch and no one had dies, everyone had 1 3/4 inch at the most. most common size of rollcages i have seen are 1 3/4 inch .120 wall DOM tube. but thats mostly on jeeps maybe 2 inch wouldnt be a bad idea for a k5

sounds like a good deal unless he screws it up lol

I agree, see what dies he has. Some of those things get way up there in price ($200+) so not everybody has all the sizes in stock. You don't want to buy a bunch of expensive DOM then on top of that have to buy a die.

The price is a hell of a deal.
