Question Custom Sliders - Like These?

Anyone using custom sliders that dont require the lower sill panels to be removed? The custom sliders on the "Orange D-90" appear to work this way, but not sure how they would mount. Just curious if others have mounted similar,

Thanks
Paul

Not sure they would be very strong. What's your objection to removing the sills?

I thought the same thing regarding the strength, so I wanted to get some idea of how they were engineered and mounted.

I am resisting the idea of the standard slider options becuase I'd rather maintain the stock appear of the truck if possible. Regardless I am planning to bite the bullet and purchase something very soon.

I wanted to see if anyone else here had a custom solution like these.

I had a pair of bearmach (tube style) that mounted like that. Other than rusting out, they were ok, but I never tested them so to speak.

They look pretty good, but I honestly think the Defender looks a lot better with a set of sliders than the sills. A nice set of sliders are understated enough that many people probably wouldn't even know they weren't stock, but that little bit just makes it look so much tougher. IMO Land Rover should have installed them from the factory on every defender.

I cant really argue with you -- they are a neccessity, and LR should have put something substantial there for protection.

I may just do as ECR does -- paint them the body color. A good compromise if the sills are coming off...

Yeah, I like the black though, I think it compliments the arches, and bumpers well. That is just my opinion though, if you prefer them painted, go for it!

Get nerf !!!

Nerf bars also help for the doors lifespan. Saves allot of dents and scratches when parked in tight spaces. I have personally heard the clean sound of a door on my sliders as I was approaching my truck and its just a relief to have those on.
