Rock / Tree Sliders
Feel like the sides of the 110 are rather vulnerable, and it’s the 4x4 I’ve had that doesn’t have side steps or tree sliders.

I’m really not a fan of the Land Rover side steps, so any recommendations?

The Lucky8 ones look good but shipping something that big from the US isn’t ideal. Any UK based/stocked manufacturers? Haven’t really seen much from all the traditional guys yet… Cheers, David

Devon 4x4 were posting about a set they were developing on Instagram but then they just went quiet, it may be worth dropping them a line to see how far along they are Thumbs Up Cheers Ian

It would be good if they have some news, I followed it up after the instagram post and was just told they were still in development and they had no idea of when they would be available Thumbs Up Cheers Ian

Tuff Ant Australia let a few of us know they are not far from releasing their Rock Sliders for the L663,
as they are also have UK outlets, it may be worth pinging them as an alternative option as well yet another pommie bar steward down under

anyone fitted the Devon 4x4 ones yet? I've got mine in the garage and they look great but I've realised it's going to be a fairly big job (they're extremely heavy for starters!) Cheers, David

The Devon 4x4 rock sliders seem to be the best ones out there apart from the Lucky 8’s.
Are you going to fit them on your phev?
I will also be installing those same ones on my phev. Let us know how you got on please. And good luck btw Thumbs Up

I will certainly report back!

Just interested if anyone else has actually fitted them yet - D4x4 don’t yet really have “instructions” Cheers, David
