What has everyone found that is the best way to cut some 1.5 inch tubing off the top of the rear frame? I am going to cage my truck cab back and will be redoing the rear. Sawzall then angle grinder or oxy/acetlyne torch then angle grinder or ?????????????? I dont have a plasma so that isnt an option right now.

I usually use my heliarc, then file down the rest. This will give you maximum penetration

I forget who makes them but you can buy really thin cut-off wheels (about .080" thick) for about two bucks if you have a little grinder. I know Cameron Welding Supply carries them. I've found that the easiest way to go.

Ill try a sawzall on one and I got a compressor and some 3 inch cut off wheels and a die grinder. Ill see what works best.
