This isn't the best picture, but here is a really neat idea....this is on a Moby1 off road trailer but would work perfectly for a removable step to attack to your sliders. Their step I don't think is positively attached in anyway, just meant to slide in while at camp, but you could build it with a set of small hitch pins behind the slider. leave the step installed for daily travel and ingress/egress needs and remove it when off-roading or when posting pictures on the 'net and not working a dorky looking step hanging off the side of your truck

Tree bars can always be added to rock sliders pretty easy by your local fabricator .

I hated the looks of them, that is until I installed some a few weeks ago. I love them now. And it certainly helps to have a step when tying kayaks, etc to the rack. Good step for the kids, wife. Im sold

Rock and Tree sliders are the first modification we do to Defenders.

Yes they are great in supermarket car parks. Also great on road. One black ice morning I did not make a 90 degree bend uphill at low speed. Bumper took out one concrete bollard, the tree slider took out the second bollard. Lost a bit of powder coating on tree slider but saved drivers door, B pillar and passenger door. That was on a 4 month old Defender 110. Best 240 spent



In UK in my opinion the best ones are made by Safari Equip which hot dipped galvanised then powder coated.
