Looks like Mantec. Not sure who's selling them. Might try Rovers North.

DAP has a cheaper version. Those are the mantecs. Rovers North carries them. Around 300 bucks for a pair.

Yup Mantecs.. I had them on my Yellow D90. Very strong. Only draw back was that they are very snug mounted to the front fender so if you drop the truck down hard directly at that spot, it will slightly curl the bottom of the skin.

I've never seen them with the steps either fwiw.

It's true. They've done that to mine. Not too bad, just a bit of a bummer.

I had just never seen any with steps quite like that before. My dad always had a hard time climbing up in the LE even after I put sliders on that were wide enough to get your foot on...still just needed something that hung down some for him to be able to reach.

I have these grab handles on my truck. They help a little bit, but having some retractable steps would be nice.

I had those as well on the LE...but it was still hard. He's an amputee and has limited mobility in his left leg which makes getting in and out of the passenger side really hard unless he has a good step on the way up.

The factory side steps work well (which I have a set of in the garage off the LE) but they don't offer any sort of off road protection or much in the way of side impact protection.

That's kinda interesting with the recessed step. Yeah I would want them to be easily removable...although I don't get too carried away off road anymore...I'd rather not rip the things off either.

An interesting concept that I thought of exploring would be to replicate the step for an M1 tank. It uses two VERY heavy spiral steel cables about 10" apart hanging down vertically, with a flat cross bar, much like a rope ladder. very effective, resistant to movement with the weight of a person, but can flex/move when it is crushed or hit while moving. I can get a picture next time I'm at the motorpool at ft bragg next month if anyone is interestd. would work perfectly with sliders.

I didn't know Rovertym would do them for a Defender though. I've had Rovertym sliders on a Discovery before and thought they were great.

I'd like to see that.

Rovertym doesn't make them for the 90.
