Default axial yeti Formula offroad tube chassis

hey guys so im looking into building my first tube chassis. Its going to be based on my yeti 2.2 dimensions and running gear.
So im hoping for some advice on tubing for the roll cage/chassis and on aluminium sheet metal for the ifs chassis tub.
What thiuckness aluminium sheet should i use for the main chassis base where everything is built off? or should i use stainless steel for that piece?
Also what size tube should i use for the chassis/rollcage?
do they make hollow round tube in aluminum in that size? or am i best to go with steel hydrolic tubing for the frame?
any advice or info as to what you would use for this build will be much appreciated.

Im going to be building it off Insane Racings orange and silver FOFF rig,
Or maybe copying the white valvoline ford bronco FOFF rig named Lightfoot.
Thanks heaps guys,
look forward to getting some info n starting on custom chassis work.

It really depends on the welding /brazing equipment, and the skill you have on what you build with. For a performance build, lighter is better, so aluminum...

1/8" aluminum works good for the pan.

ok, so is the DOM tubing that iv seen a few guys are using Aluminium or steel? or can you get both?
Also what wall thickness would you say to use for the 3/16 aluminium DOM tube?

Iv got a quality MIG welder with aluminuim or steel setup.

Im looking at using a proper brakeline bender aswell.
