*GCM is determined by the specific OE towing capacity for your vehicle. See further down below for the OE towing capacities for this vehicle - whereas new GCM is the combination of the new GCM + OE towing capacity.

Important: When fitting a Lovells 3500kg GVM Upgrade to the Toyota Hilux 2WD high ride, the vehicle must have a minimum tyre load index of 110 and 6 stud rims to remain compliant. (Does not suit low-ride/non-high-ride 2WD variants which run 5 stud wheels).

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 Toyota Hilux GUN 10/2015~ 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 - $770 if GVM upgrade is done prior to first inital registration point under the second stage manufacturer (SSM) scheme.
