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 Landcruiser 79 series Cab Chassis 03/2007~ 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.

IS IT TRUE? CAN THE BRAKED TOWING CAPACITY BE UPGRADED ON A 79 SERIES?

Almost, but only on the Ancap 5 variant with a 4200kg GVM upgrade. The upgrade is set to hit the market mid-2018, and the Braked Towing Capacity increase will be SSM approved. So not only can the GVM be increased on the Toyota Landcruiser 79 series, but the Braked Towing Capacity will also be able to be increased from 3500kg to 4000kg with a GCM of 7800kg.
