Land Rover Passion’s Tree Sliders for Discovery 3 and Discovery 4 are studied in order to satisfy the most exigent offroaders!
Owing to the Discovery 3’s or Discovery 4’s big distance between front and rear axes, the spars’ zone underneath the vehicle’s doors becomes a delicate point, exposed to hits. The original protection, made of a simple plastic profile, is not sufficient to avoid the damages caused by off-road activity. The Tree Slider task is both to protect the under-door area and to hold high obstacles, such as rocks or trees, away from the vehicle body, too.
Following the Land Rover Passion philosophy, for this car models the Tree Sliders have necessarily to satisfy the following requirements:
Resistance: the lateral bars must be as strong as to support the vehicle’s weight without folding and consequently always allowing the doors’ opening.
Installation simplicity and reversibility: they must be installed without making holes, cuts or modifications to the original vehicle parts.
Dimensions: they must offer maximum protection both to the spars and to the vehicle body, without reducing the distance between vehicle itself and the ground and without surpassing the maximum shape dimensions.
Starting from the more discrete Rock Sliders’ base, we studied a new under-door profile, reinforced by a particular ribbing that not only provides strenghtness but also mades the obstacles’ slipping easier and protects the fixing screws’s head. Lateral bars, made of a strong metal, are connected to the under-door profile by tubular sections, welded without interruptions, in order to give rigidity and strenght to the entire structure.
Using the specific adapter, the Tree Sliders are predisposed to lift the car with an Hi-Lift jack.
To reach the main goal of treatment against corrosion, the Land Rover Passion Tree Sliders, before being powder coated, are subjected to a primer painting by cataphoresis process.
