Treesliders Rocksliders Sill Footsteps Defender 90 – Pair.
Hardy and comfortable Treeslider, with just one component you will have three major uses:
Footboard: to use like a handy walkable floor to work on the Luggage Rack to rearrange of the tent -usually it requires some effort, especially on raised vehicles- to fix the Luggage without necessarily get on the roof rack, or simply to facilitate getting into the car.
Treeslide: the solid structure is capable to keep away possibily obstacles that may be damage the body of your Defender. Its characteristic elusive and tapered shape allows the “slip” on obstacles you might encounter along the route off-road, often very narrow and not very easy.
Sill: come into contact with rocks, protruding roots or very pronounced bumps of earth or rock is a very common occurrence in an off-road path. A very exposed and delicate point is located just below the doors: a blow to this area may in fact cause serious damage to the bodywork and doors themselves, risking to block the opening and subsequent imprisonment in the vehicle. Some sills, not strong enough or poorly designed, are sometimes causes to door lock, because they do not collapse but fold against them, thus causing more serious damage.
By building on the wealth of experience accumulated over time, in particular through extreme races where each component is put to the test, we have designed this specific sills for Defender, structuring it in such a way as to support without collapse at least 150 kg, the equivalent of two people. Sideways its wedge shape allows to safely withstand the weight of the vehicle, discharging the forces in solids joints to the frame, while in support of the lower part which comes into contact with the obstacle, it will deform, but leaving the upper part complete and keeping unchanged its shape, thus avoiding colliding with the car door.
To facilitate the draining of the sludge collected from the vehicle or from the shoes after walking in the mud, in the upper part there are large holes surrounded with aluminum plates, specially designed to increase the grip and make the surface less slippery.
On the sides there are some holes to allow the vehicle lifting with a “Jack”.
