Defender 110 Tree sliders - personal experiance needed please

Recommended Posts

I want to fit some tree sliders to the 110 Hi cap, mine is modified though so I think normal 110 ones will be what I need

 

I think tree sliders on a standard Hi Cap just replace the sill under the door up to the edge of the rear tub. The rear tub on mine sits at the same level as the bottom of the door (not the bottom of the sill) as the tub has been raised to get tipping gear underneath. Thus I think a standard 110 tree slider should fit.

 

Can anyone show me how they fit on a standard 110? Also what measurement are they from end to end? I know the wheelbase is obviously the same but am unsure if the wheel arch hole is bigger?

Mine had them, they were a home-made affair I believe. They bolted on to the bulkhead outrigger triangulation bracket at the front, and to the 2nd row footwell outrigger at the back.

They sat below the structural sill member which remained, but they replaced the aluminium sill trim piece.

i have treesliders on my 3 door 110 , they bolt to the bulkhead bracket at the front , and at the (in my case) unused chassis outrigger just in front of the rear wheel , you have to remove the aluminium sill panels and they bolt up easy ...

Great thanks, sounds like they will fit. The outrigger on mine is used for the rear cab support as it is a truck cab (body on the Hi Cap is seperate. Would you mind measuring the length of them for me please?

That is incredibly helpful thank you!!

 

My plan should work out perfectly. Will just check your measurements to mine tonight and get some ordered

Annoyingly as I initially suspected. The wheel arch is wider on the Hi Capacity so the tree slider will stick past the arch on the rear tub and look very odd. It would stick out by 9cm.

 

I wonder if I fitted some wheel arch spats to it and then trimmed them to let the slider go underneath if it would look ok. Hmmm!

They are pretty simple , why not make a pair?  Or shorten the new ones.

If you're busy I can mod them for you .

cheers

Mine are quite different, combo tree/rock slider and steps. They work very hard and have protected me quite a few times...

I'll work out how to get some photos on here for you

Ok, some photos done...

 

I apologise for the torn mudflaps, did some heavy duty offroad work a couple of weeks ago (that's where the recent damage to the nearside slider happened, a couple of rocks hidden in some long grass over a deep hole!😲)
