I've been doing this for a long time, so I have talked to allot of guys out there about their applications. Tubing is best used for roll cages, frames and chassis... etc.

Pipe is often used for hand rail, fencing, gates and fluid applications...etc

Believe it or not, I have had a couple guys call who were building Rock Crawlers out of Schedule 40 pipe. It's rare, but some guys are doing it.
