I,m thinking I will build my own.Try to lower the seats a bit and go for it.Might be weld on as well to get rid of all the bends.

Well, The Wildcat to answer your question. It is a low carbon blend, High Strength Low Alloy (HSLA). You can weld on it, but it is not as straight forward as a 4000 series chromoly and it has different re tempering performances. It is lighter and has a stronger yeild than 4150 CRMO but about the same tensile strength, depending on composition grade. The walls can be even thinner when used in perimter form. Mild steel is not even in the same conversation. It is just the easiest and cheapest to work with which is why people use it. For this application, it would not be a practical choice. My opinion.What stock cages are made of super pricey alloys? And what alloys are better than Chromoly? Chromoly is stronger than mild steel. Therefore you can go with a thinner wall thicknes and have a lighter cage.
