Ive heard a lot of discussions on other sites about what kind of tubing to use.

I noticed the material that you use for the Viper OffRoad builds is 1 1/8" diameter DOM.

Can you give me a brief on why?

We use the 1 1/8" diameter for its strength compared to 1" diameter.
DOM means 'Drawn Over Mandrel' which improves the consistency of the tubes wall thickness
and also eliminates the tubes interior weld seam. Quality material as compared to HRW tubing.
