I would suggest 1/8 inch aluminum sheet, that is what my truck is made of. For the top hat you can pick something that makes sense for you, I tried to get as beefy as possible and match the size of what my truck already had in there. Also, I would generally avoid self tapping screws in an aluminum to aluminum arrangement. The steel screws will eventually strip the softer aluminum. That is why aluminum sheet work is generally so rivet intensive. If you're doing aluminum to steel frame that's a different story.
