Psyoptic Development Defender 90 XD Sliders

This is my last set I'll be doing for a while. In usual work-a-holic fashion I've got too many projects going on and not enough time, and I need to invest in my future in the fabrication world.

This particular set is special because it is the first set I've done with grip tape on the surface.

For those who aren't in the know: These are the toughest rock sliders you will ever find for your Defender, and 110% made in the USA. These are designed to handle the toughest off-road conditions, and will soundly demolish any car door that dares open too far in the mall parking lot. They double as a side-step and serve as a great platform for reaching your roof rack, or taking the top on or off of your D90 Soft top.

The sliders are 100% constructed from laser cut and CNC formed 0.250" thick steel plate. Most of the other sliders currently on the market are 1.5 - 2mm or ~0.079" thick. In other words my sliders are 3X thicker, and substantially stronger. They are also the ONLY Defender rock slider to my knowledge to feature a true boat-sided design as well as 3 solid frame mounting points per side. These will fit any Defender 90 with a rear mounted gas tank.

These are NOT cheap, thin-wall, thin-tubed, mall crawler, poser-spec, import garbage steel rock sliders like so many of the offerings currently on the market.

$1000 + shipping

This set is intended for 90's with a rear-mounted fuel tank.

I think I paid $200 just for shipping alone. And I'm still still stoked about these! Trailhead lines, new tyres, everything that tiktaalik made, and pdxd's were the best upgrades I've done to date.

Yes and No. Yes I can make them, and have made them, I'm just not sure the market is there to make them worth my time, on anything other that a 1 off custom route.... and that is $$$

So, I'm assuming these use existing mounting points on the chassis even for the mid mount position. Looks like it uses the crossmember mounting holes. Is that correct?


Also just curious, will a standard Hi-lift still work on these or are they wider than the lifting jaw on a hi-lift?


Thanks man. These are really tempting but not sure I can spare the $$$ at the moment.

You're absolutely correct on the mounting.

As far as a hi-lift goes, I would use one of the jaw adapters that is wider, and more encompassing, purely for safety/stability. Those things are already dangerous enough as it is. I remember a while back when a guy at an event caught a handle in the face. It was not a good scene.

Thanks for the answers on the questions man. These are about the best sliders I've seen. They also look like a lot of work to produce.

I've had mine for 3-4 years and they are bullet-proof.

They are hands down the best slides ever conceived.
