If you think pipe is gone to be stronger.. Go for it... But if you have a press give it a little test and see if your wrong or not..

I think you will be surprized at the result...

As far as the welding goes.. When done right you get the same result's tubing or pipe as far as stress goes..

This might give you some ideas..Making A Willys Frame !!
