D90 Sliders w/ Tree bars

So I finally got around to making some HD 90 sliders with tree bars, I think they turned out pretty well. Can't wait to get them on a truck.

Here are the details on these:

Main slider body is 2.00 x 3.00 x 0.25" box section steel.
Tree Bars are 1.50 x 0.120 DOM tubing
The sliders utilize the center 3rd frame mount outriggers (not pictured) that go from the slider to the 3 LT230 frame mounting holes.
These are 100% made in the USA, unlike some of the other light duty sliders available out there.

I'm waiting to get these back from powder coating and I'll have a final price for them.

Looks nice, but I don't think "foundered" is the correct word for what you're describing.

I understand you're trying to appeal to the "Made in America" premium marketing label, but you might want to reconsider your choice of words

English is not my strong suit. I mainly do math, but thanks. I'll figure out the correct words for what I'm trying to say.

So I'm back on these. My apologies to everyone who PM'ed me with interest. I was injured at work 2.5 weeks ago and had part of my finger cut-off, so I've dealing with all the fun that has entailed, and I'm just now getting back to catching up on the rover stuff. These 2 sets are powder coated and I'll be getting some pics together this weekend, and then offering them up for sale.

Here are the finished products, powder-coated and ready to go.

These sliders are intended for those who plan to wheel their Defender hard, doing serious trail work, rock crawling, and tough expedition use.

I'm also working on lower cost, lighter duty, sliders for those who want a solid slider, that is of higher quality than the current import offerings, but do not plan to abuse their Defender to a level warranting additional frame outriggers and heavy wall tubing.

I'm interested in some of the "lighter duty" sliders if you plan on making a 110 version.

Those look great. Worth the price of admission.

Thanks for all the patience. I'm getting real close to having the 110 and 90 sliders ready.
