The vehicle first stage manufacturer (Ford) rates the GCM to 6000kg and not 6700kg which is a huge problem if left standard. Read more information about this major issue here Factory 3500kg Towing Capacity Does Not Deliver What It Promises. Carrying out a Second Stage of Manufacture Lovells GVM upgrade to this vehicle resolves all towing issues by compliancing the vehicle with a new GCM by means of the calculation of new GVM + Braked Towing Capacity.

*New* - The Ford Ranger PX3 GCM can be increased from 6000kg to 7000kg for both 4x4 and 2x4 high rider variants. We are currently engineering a new strut and envisage release of the new P/N by November 2018. Once finalised, we will release a new Kit Part Number, Order Forms and document packs for the new vehicle. Therefore, although we can increase the GVM/GCM on the Ford Ranger PX3 through the current SSM approvals, we cannot carry out the mechanical upgrade until this new strut is available.

Note that The GCM (Gross Combined Mass) doesn’t form part of a Lovells GVM Upgrade or noted in Lovells DIT Approval for Second Stage of Manufacture. As mentioned above it is basically governed by the new GVM of the vehicle and the maximum braked towing capacity.

The Original Equipment maximum braked towing capacity for example on the Ford Ranger PX is 3500kg. This doesn’t increase nor decrease when our GVM Upgrade is fitted, it remains at 3500kg. Unlike LS11 10% GVM upgrades where the braked towing capacity will decrease - but that is a completely different ball game marketed at vehicles prior to 2005 build dates & vehicles that do not have Second Stage of Manufacturer testing approvals, read more about LS11 vs. SSM here.

Expect approx. 30mm-50mm lift over OE, dependant on weight and location of accessories fitted. Save $550 - $660 if GVM upgrade is done prior to first inital registration point under the second stage manufacturer (SSM) scheme.
