I need to borrow a 110 and have it at my shop for a solid weekend. I've been working off of any published frame drawings and measurements I can find, but I need an actual truck to use to fine tune my rear frame mounting bracket setup and unfortunately I don't own a 110 of my own.

lets make you a set. Grab some material at Dillion's and come over one day and we can knock them out in a couple hours.

Updates! Prototype set #1 will be hopefully finished up Wednesday of next week. I've been SUPER busy with my day job for the last 2 months so this project slowed to a crawl. Also I don't have ready access to a 110 so Overlander has been awesome and let me poke around his 110 when he's been around. Once they're done I'll do a test fit, and then we'll take it from there. Once I'm happy with fitment and have everything dialed in, I'll be taking deposits on the first run on 110 sliders.

Hey Carter,
I know you got your hands full but just curious if the 110 sliders have made any progress or they on hold? Will they fit a NAS110?
Thanks,
Ed

Ed,
Yes I do, it's been CRAZY lately, but here's the latest update.
I just finished a redesign of my rear-most mounting brackets, not because they didn't work, but but because I thought I could improve them and make them even better. I'm a perfectionist, and I'm not going to release to the Defender community until I'm 130% happy with it. Quality is paramount to me. Once I fabricate these brackets and fit them on the test 110 I've been using to verify fitment I will be ready to look at doing a production run. So probably a few weeks to a month or so.

They will absolutely fit a NAS110, in fact all of my original design measurements were taken from a NAS110. So please be patient with me as I get a batch of 90 sliders finished up, and start getting my shop cleaned out for the inevitable move.

Just an update for the guys who have been patiently waiting on D90 XD Sliders. I know I'm running behind, it's been crazy with long hours at the day job due to outage season going on, my laser cutter dropping the ball and dealing with loosing my current shop and finding new space, but they're coming. I hope to have everything headed to powder-coating next week.

I'm sending off updated mounting bracket files to my laser cutter this weekend to get the ball rolling on what will hopefully be the last iteration of the 110 frame mounting brackets. Give me a few weeks to get all the new laser cut 110 stuff here as well as the 110 test truck back at the shop so I can put it all together and then we'll go from there.

Just did a photo shoot for the upcoming website with a set of the sliders from the latest batch.

And yes the 110 sliders really are coming. I have some new Ver 2.0 brackets on the way from my laser cutter.
