u betcha,,, i add a additional crossmember between the top rails,,as u can see,for strength at the top joint , all the 1" DOM seamless is slugged with tube an plug welded as well as around the joint.. fit a 1.25" pc of DOM in between there,, makes a nice mountin point for a BILTWELL seat bracket...
