thought about doing this my self

100mm x 50mm heavy duty box section steel (3mm wall thickness)

some 20mm steel bar bent and welded on as tree deflector

some steel tube fitted and welded into the box section.

just need to find the time.

Having put 100x50 on my RRC - I reckon you'd be better off with 100x60 (it would fit better in place of the original sill)

(Edit: Ooh - sorry, maybe I assume too much? Is the Disco sill the same width as the RRC?)

The problem to overcome in making sliders for a Disco is the camberd sill line. I've looked at doing it, but making them from pre-formed steel section steel was not the best option.

I saw a guy make a set for his Discovery by mounting them behind the plastic sill.

This way he kept the astetic looks of the camberd sills....but the box section behind the sill was used as the rock slider.

He didn't have jacking points on them either which I think are a great benefit to have on a Discovery.

If you are not so worried about keeping the lines of the Discovery sills...then the above option of Russ would be the way to go.

Regards.

Made a set for mine with 100x50 box.

With some time taken and a little jiggling you can get away with using stright box section with out it looking too odd.

Hi waveydave It looks good and your cars is nice.

I will take some pic. off the rocksliders and put it one here. :huh::D
