Psyoptic Development XD Rock Sliders for D90

I have a BRAND NEW in the crate set of Psyoptic Development XD rock sliders for sale.

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/or zombie apocalypse. They will also get you laid.
These are NOT cheap, thin-wall, mall crawler, poser-spec, import garbage steel rock sliders like so many that are currently out there.

This is the last set I have available. It may be a while before I do another run of these 90 sliders since I have some other projects in the works.
These will fit any Defender 90 with a rear mounted gas tank.

$1000 for the set

Carter, you might want to give specs like wall thickness etc. I don't have a 90, but for me saying something is ready for the zombie apocalypse isn't speaking to my wallet. I have seen your work and know these are pretty much the ultimate slider for a 90 but others don't. Wish you and Raub had connected on something similar for the ex MOD trucks with the side lockers.

Doug,

Point taken. I'm not much of a salesman, I just know how to build stuff, and provide customer service. I'd like to have done a set of sliders for Raub, but never heard anything back from him after the raffle. In reality I'm having a hell of a time finding someone to volunteer their 110 to test fit and sport my prototype 110 sliders who lives anywhere within 300 miles of me. I've literally been sitting on them for a few months now...

Back to the XD sliders,

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 .079" in other words my sliders are 3 X 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 frame mounting points per side.

Carter, would you please tell me how wide the top surface is when it is attached to the Defender? It looks pretty wide, as if a tree bar would be unnecessary. And it looks wide enough to use as a step....

Thanks,

Chuck

Chuck, the top surface is 4" wide, and are intended to be used as a stepping surface as well as providing substantial tree/rock protection. They make a great platform to stand on for taking top on and off, or getting to your roof rack.

I have a 130 and a 110 sitting at the shop North of Raleigh if you want to come to the shop and fit them. We will be doing professional photo shoot for both of these when they are done. And I have a pretty good selection of fab equipment as well. Just throwing it out there bc of a request from one of my customers. If not I'll be making them a couple sets...

I am back and forth between these and the ones you make with the tree bar, as I think the tree bar will offer a better step because of the gap.

Maybe I need two defenders so I can get a set of both....

We all do! ;-) But these are just too awesome to pass up. Justify these any way you can. If I had the money and needed sliders, these would have sold in three minutes just like everything else that's well made on this site. ( But I already have sliders and no money) ;-)

In fact, these sliders are also a safety device, and unlike airbags on a defender, these will actually save your life! For instance, defender bodies are pretty much one big crumple zone. But these sliders are so stout, that if you got smashed from behind by a semi, that then pushed you into another semi, I bet your doors would still open! ;-)

Hi Carter,

Can you confirm that the sliders will fit an ROW 90 assuming that I don't use your middle connecting point which obviously conflicts with the under seat tank? The other two connecting points I assume are on the bulkhead outrigger and the existing tubular outrigger. I can work out the third connection down the road, likely combined as a tank guard.

If so, licked. Let's pm payment and shipping details.

Could you PM me details of what you're thinking? Is this an opportunity to just test fit my sliders, or does your customer actually want a set of my sliders for their vehicle? It's a little early in the AM and I'm not reading this clearly.

Mike, that is correct. The side mount gas tank would interfere with the middle frame outrigger, so you would not be able to use the middle outrigger on that side of the truck. I plan to make a special skid set-up for the ROW 90's with side tanks, I just have not been able to get my hands on one of these trucks yet to actually do the prototype design work.

Not sure about the accordion effect but these sliders are far stouter than a defenders frame. From a safety standpoint I think a broadside collision is where they would likely save your life.

Like Lav's billet wing top vents and dash bezels, Carters sliders should be on all defenders. These are one of those items that when you see it you just marvel.

Jon is extremely innovative with his designs... His sliders are the best sliders on the market, hands down.

I have had mine for the past 3-4 years. I have put them through every situation imaginable.
