Sliders for 110...who makes a solid pair?

So every set of sliders I've looked at have the weakest rear connection point known to man (where it just bolts lamely to the outrigger). Then, if you look at a majority of 110s that have been wheeled they're all twisted in, particularly on that back connection.

Does ANYONE make a stout pair of sliders - for a 110 - that can take a punch? Any real world input is appreciated.

madcowdungbeetle made some sweet ones - he may be able to make you some custom ones for the 110.

Entreq makes an awesome pair.

But you have to ship from Germany.

And it comes as a kit, ie you have to weld or at least tack weld together and then do final weld later.

It uses existing points and to connect to.

Those rear connection points looks similar to the rest of the ones I've seen that dont offer much support (Mantec/etc).

I am building some to be super stout. If you know what you want, making them yourself or having a local shop fab some up for you may be your best bet.

I would take a pair from terrafirma and re-do the rear bracket and even stiffen up the middle bracket. I noticed what you are talking about and agree but this was the only way unless you build them yourself, or have a shop build them for you.

Buy the cheapest set you can find and then have a local guy build real mounts.

sliders

Build your own sliders. It is the best way to get a stout pair of sliders just they way you want.

The problem I have found is the out riggers on Defenders are not always in the same place from one vehicle to the next. That is why these manufactured ones are bolt on with slotted holes to compensate for the variations.

The out riggers are not all that tough either. I built a set of pretty stout sliders and managed to bend the frame of the Defender and still crunch the door bottoms and quarter panels when the slider made contact. I am sure there is a way to beef up the frame attachment points even more.

Jason,
Buy a decent pair and I'll fab up some rear mounts - that's what I did on mine. Tied 'em to the frame. As everyone said above, even the mounting points are weak no matter what. Even at the front outrigger they have a tendency to twist up and mash the fender unless you tie it better to the outrigger.

Sliders are really easy to make too.

Those look like they mount pretty well in the rear using the trailing arm bolt holes? The front point is still an issue on the outrigger. They still look stronger than most on the market.

Jason, those look like they use the whole rear outrigger AND the trailing arm bolt holes - definetely stronger than anything I have seen.

Jonathan - did you start with the Mantecs for your base, if I recall? This may be the way to go...

Yep, started with Mantecs, then added tree sliders and tied them to the frame. I still need to beef up the other mounting points though.

My first 110 had a pair that were so strong you could put the slider against a bolder turn towards the bolder, let the clutch out, and pivot the entire truck on the stone with the only ill effect being paint scrapage on the slider. I was told they were 'camel trophy" sliders but each floor plate bolt that came through the stringer that makes up the lower door sill also went through a tab for the slider so it had front, rear, and every bolt in between. Very HD. I was told Mantek was the original manufacturer. Gustavo put Equipe stickers on them when he re painted the truck but not sure who made them.
