Why do you need to consider a 200 Series Landcrusier Vehicle G.V.M (Gross Vehicle Mass) upgrade?

A Toyota 200 Series with bull bar, winch, extra fuel tank, roll out drawers and a rear bar with spare wheel carrier can be over the manufacturers Original Equipment GVM of 3300kg. Excluding anyone in the vehicle!

The following is a theoretical analysis of Original Equipment (Factory Gross Vehicle Mass) and limitations to load carrying. Load carry available after 8 x 68 Kg people on board, with 13.6 kg luggage each, no additional LBA

Therefore, a vehicle with eight (8) average size occupants and luggage, will theoretically exceed the Original Equipment and legal Gross Vehicle Mass. This is without any load bearing accessories (spare wheel carrier, bull bar, winch, roof rack, draw system, dual batteries etc) fitted.

When Should A GVM Upgrade Kit Be Fitted?

FEDERAL COMPLIANCE: New vehicles must be fitted prior to registration. They are simply then registered with a revised GVM as per the new compliance plate.

Vehicles which are already registered cannot be fitted with a kit under this Federal Approval.

STATE COMPLIANCE: GVM Upgrades can be fitted to already registered vehicles in NSW, ACT, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Northern Territory and Western Australia only, and after modification, will have to be inspected by a Lovells nominated State Engineering Signatory. Extra Cost for Inspection and documents will be incurred.

Is The Original Equipment Warranty Affected When Fitting A LOVELLS GVM Upgrade?

Vehicle warranty is not affected when a GVM Upgrade is fitted. Our testing and analysis procedures are stringent and undertaken by an accredited Automotive Engineering Consultant to ensure original equipment components are not compromised. Modifications and load limits are within theoretical service/safety factors to ensure the integrity and longevity of Original Equipment parts associated with increasing the vehicles load carrying capabilities. As Lovells are a Second Stage Manufacturer, it is our responsibility to document these tests and thus take responsibility for the GVM upgrade compliance.

Therefore, should an original equipment component fail and be directly attributed/caused by the vehicle carrying loads to a maximum GVM of the revised figure or part failure associated with the GVM Upgrade modification, Lovells will cover warranty of the component after written proof and testing by an independent body has been lodged.
