Defender Rock Sliders Upgrade

I installed a pair of Defender Rock Sliders, also known as side rails , to improve protection of my bodywork while off-roading. They are designed to replace the standard aluminium sills thus they do not affect ground clearance. The steel construction allows the vehicle to scrap its way over rocks along the base, and the tree sliders protect the body panels from costly damage by deflecting obstacles away from the body. They can also be used to jack the vehicle from the sides if necessary.

These Mulgo Side Rails were kindly provided by Expedition Centre, an Australian based company providing excellent gear for your 4wd.
