New Product Release-GVM Upgrade Kit for Toyota Landcruiser 76/78/79 series

If your Landcruiser carries heavy loads or if you are serious when it comes to packing equipment for the journey you take then look no further.

When your Landcruiser is fully loaded for the long haul or if you’re carrying the tools of your trade, chances are that your vehicle may be overloaded beyond its GVM and you may not even know it. Common items such as tools, tool boxes, cargo, bull bars, winches, towbars, recovery gear and even your passengers all combine to increase the overall gross vehicle mass. Its also important to note that if you have purchased a cab/chassis, the weight of the tray is not part of the “curb weight”. Every vehicle on our roads today has an official legally allocated gross vehicle mass rating (GVM). The GVM rating is a legal weight figure (in kg’s) that results in the total maximum allowable weight of a vehicle when fully loaded. It’s essentially the maximum legal weight, that you can safely drive at for that particular vehicle. Pedders now offer a GVM upgrade solution for selected Landcruiser models to assist in compliance for GVM ratings. The reason for this solution is for the following requirements: O.H.&S. vehicle insurance, warranty issues and being road legal. Through exhaustive and detailed testing, the Pedders GVM Upgrade Kits have been approved by the Federal Department of Infrastructure and Transport.
