Galvanized sliders with tree bars & a welded on step?


I saw a Defender 90 at the Portland, Oregon ABFM yesterday & it had a set of sweet galvanized sliders with tree bars on it- with integral steps below. Any idea who makes them? I want the sliders & tree bars for side impact protection- so welded on steps below won't get ripped off or bent. I need something below the sliders because my wife is only 5'3" & insists on it. From what I've seen, the standard step can't be (easily) added to sliders.




Current fleet: '85 Ninety 3.9 V8i Auto SW, '95 Discovery (restoring it for my Nephew),'07 BMW 335Xi.
Past Land Rovers: '96 Discovery SD, '00 Range Rover HSE, '04 Discovery SE7, '07 Range Rover HSE, '08 LR3 SE7.
Past fleet: '89 Classic Mini, '83 Porsche 911 SC Coupe, '89 911 Carrera targa, '96 911 Carrera 4, '07 Toyota FJ Cruiser, '04 Mini Cooper S, '11 Mini Cooper S Countryman All4.

Get a leather stirrup or something like that you can attach and detach easily. Any regular step will get ripped off or bent offroad.

Do not read the next sentence.

You little rebel, I like you.

Back swing (under the truck) is the problem with stirrups. A step stool is still inconveniently the best solution, but still a pita. Oem tubular steps work-ish. I have them under the sliders (no tree bars) and simply remove them (three easy bolts) when absolutely needed.

Call RN, and talk to Travis- we just discussed this with Mark- they used to make a set for 90 and 11 with removable steel side steps!! They were awesome!!
