Here's a frame I did for my 41 willys.. 2''X4''X1/8'' Making A Willys Frame !!

5''X5''X3/16 Will be strong enough to build a tank on it... My thought on this is way to big for what you want to build.. I do use 3/16 wall sometimes on a smaller car to give some weight to the car.. I'm not sure what your weight will be.. But I think a 20' 5''x5''x3/16'' is 240lbs by it's self..My willy's was 2''x4''x1/8 wall tubing..Most of the frames I build are 2''x3''x1/8 or 2''x4''x1/8 and sometimes 3/16''.. Did you draw your frame up on paper ?
I can tell you this much.. I think it will be heavy..
