We almost had the park to ourselves. There might have been 10-15 more rigs in the park. We had 8 rigs in our group. Here's a few pics.












Bent this Copperhead Fab H1 center on the first obstacle.

Dirty Ole Man wheeled the $h!t out of the 88 YJ and it ran with 4 lug nuts the whole time he had it.
But who knows...that may have helped that mild steel out.

No, I believe it is the fact that the centers are only 1/4" thick plate. Not enough meat!

Yeah...I bought these centers from Copperhead Fab a couple of years ago (when i started build) without reading any info about them on any of the sites. After I had them lying around for about a year, I saw on Pirate that people had some issues with 1/4" centers bending outside the bolt face (and not just Copperhead but other 1/4" centers). I really should have ordered 3/8" centers, pressed centers or at least gusseted the 1/4" ones. Like I said...you live and ya learn. I dont exactly have dispensible $$$ at this second so I will probably finish the centering on my other two wheels, recenter another wheel with my "spare" center and gusset the $h!t outta them all. I just don't feel like like doing all the damn welding.
