The one I used was the same outside diameter as mine. I had to cut it to find out the thickness which was about a 1/4". I was assuming you have all the alignment tools and were going to reuse your ends. When I did mine I stubbed the tube off about 1" from the housing. I beveled both tube ends to be welded and used the alignment bar setup to get the tube centered. I then tacked the tube diameter in 8 places. After that fill in between the tacks using a cross pattern. You will have to do the same thing to the housing end. If you are looking for a complete weld on tube with perches and end I dont know about that. My setup was for ladder bars and I was building the brackets myself.
