Not sure if RW utilizes a frame mount or not...

Most of the off the shelf 90 sliders appear to use the bulkhead bolt for the front mount and the round outrigger for the rear mount.
Not the greatest design in my opinion...
I'm using some like this anyway(galvy/powdercoated) but I waxoiled the shit outta that round outrigger and mount because thats just going to rust like hell...

I cannot comment on other slider designs out there, but the sliders I make for Defenders utilize a Slider-to-frame middle crossmember...

Anyone got the Lucky8 galvanized ones with tree bars?

If so, how do you like them?

High traffic areas on the TF sliders. FWIW, this started happening with in a couple months of having them in the summer in Virginia, so this isn't from NYC road salt.

I have the terrafirma slider with tree guard installed. Got them from Lucky8.
Pretty heavy units... and L8 has super fast shipping!

Here is my post with pix.

Are you making any more sliders in the near future? Please let me know if you are and I'll sign up for a set. D90 XD model if you please

The sliders I got from AB were galvanized and then powder coated. Seems pretty good build quality. However, I do have to say that the mounting method of the outrigger and the bulkhead bolt isn't great. Granted, it was a really hard hit but the sliders on both sides of my truck deflected and impacted the body work. The bolts were super tight so it's purely due to the mounting design.

From what I can ascertain, the bulkhead mounting point is one bolt on a tab so when the slider takes an impact it pivots around the bolt and the outer edge of the slider comes up into the body work. An outrigger in the middle of the slider would probably reduce this (referencing the design pictures earlier in the thread) motion but ideally i think you have to weld something on there to make it truly bulletproof.

As for the AB slider itself.. no dents or anything. It's a stout piece of metal just wish it was attached better
