Don't buy one of the pre-configured frames from NRS. Instead, build your frame a'la cart picking only the pieces YOU want. If you were to price out the all the individual parts of the Bighorn I, it would cost the same as buying it pre-configured. You can also save ~$15 if you order your side rails as "by-the-foot tubing" and buy four of the rubber end caps. Also, I am pretty sure NRS only sells 6" and 8" towers. Also, I recommend buying through Darren at FrontierPlay.com
instead of direct from NRS unless you are getting the outfitter discount, he will do 10% off and free shipping. Good luck!
