Regardless of your chosen off road activity work or play and despite Land Rovers being built for off road use there is more to be done in terms of protecting the underside of your Land Rover against damage from rocks and ruts etc. The more serious your chosen off road adventures the more protection is necessary. All Terrafirma under body guards perform important roles and have been designed to protect any part of the Land Rovers under carriage that if damaged could affect the rest of your journey or day’s work. Prevention rather than cure is the message here allowing you to drive safely and with confidence.
The range of Terrafirma under body guards protects the body sides, steering gear, front and rear differentials, transmission system and fuel tanks. The steering guards, transmission guards and fuel tank guards are available in a choice of 6mm steel and 8mm aluminium. Aluminium guards are in keeping with modern design and are lighter weight. Steel guards are tougher, less expensive but heavier than the more stylish aluminium. All steel parts are gold zinc passivated for good looks are rust resistance. Terrafirma under body guards mount onto existing pre drilled holes and all necessary fixings are supplied.
Rock sliders or side protection bars are a must have for both recreational and serious off roaders. Protecting the sills and sides of your pride and joy is paramount. Keeping the bodywork away from large rocks, earth banks and trees will save a considerable amount of money in the long term.
In most cases Terrafirma rock sliders are made from sturdy steel box section with or without the optional steel tube outrigger 'tree bars' that keep the bodywork away from immovable objects just waiting to damage your doors. Tree bars can also serve as a useful step for both entering the vehicle and accessing the roof rack. For Discovery 3 Terrafirma rock sliders are made from 8mm alloy carefully folded to match the shape of the sill, again with optional tubular tree bars which also double as effective side steps for easier access.
All Rock sliders follow the profile of the original side sill, in the case of Defenders the alloy lower sill below the doors is replaced with the rock slider and the plastic trim sill is removed on all Discoverys and P38 Range Rovers.
Terrafirma Rock sliders are designed strong enough to protect the side of your vehicle, this means you can jack up the vehicle on them if required and all fixing hardware is supplied with each pair of Rock sliders.
