Ironman 4X4 has received Federal approval for its GVM-upgrades (increase of 650kg) to suit the Toyota LandCruiser 200 Series.
The Ironman 4X4 LC200 upgrade provides a massive payload increase of 650kg bringing GVM (Gross Vehicle Mass) up to 4000kg. In standard trim, the LC200’s payload can be as low as 645kg, which limits its ability to carry heavy loads, especially when equipped with touring accessories such as a bull bar, winch, roof racks, drawer system, long-range fuel tank and the like. With the GVM upgrade, Ironman 4X4 said, “You can now fit more accessories and still have load-carrying capacity in reserve!”
The Ironman 4X4 GVM upgrade includes new front and rear springs – front and rear axle capacities are increased by 100kg and 300kg respectively – and Foam Cell Pro shock absorbers that Ironman 4X4 claims are “perfectly suited to increased load in demanding and hot off-road environments”. Ironman claims the Foam Cell Pro shock absorbers distribute oil more evenly around the shock body resulting in more dissipation of heat and longer lasting control compared to traditional gas shock absorbers. Other kit components include a tyre placard, SSM Compliance Plate (Pre-Registration Only) and Cat6 Side Indicator Lamps (NA-NB1 Vehicles Only).
According to Ironman 4X4, the GVM upgrade was subject to Continuous Formal Testing to verify “product safety and performance through official certifications issued by independent testing agencies and Government departments, including DOTARS, TÜV Nord and KBA”.
The Toyota LandCruiser 200 Series GVM Upgrade is available now at approved Ironman 4X4 GVM-upgrade installers. Cost for pre-registration vehicles is from $2600 plus installation; add cost of additional engineering sign-off on post-registration vehicles. For details, see http://ironman4x4.com/store-locator.
