WHY DO 200 SERIES LANDCRUISER VEHICLES REQUIRE G.V.M (Gross Vehicle Mass) UPGRADES?
Real-world testing has shown that a typically fitted-out 200 Series with bull bar, winch, extra fuel tank, rear tray, canopy and a rear bar with spare wheel carrier can be easily approaching the manufacturers Original Equipment GVM of 3350kg. That’s without any passengers or any luggage in the vehicle!
The Superior Engineering – OUTBACK ADVENTURER kit is specifically designed to suit any vehicle owner/operator who has a need to carry loads approaching 1200 kg. All vehicles such as Loaded Tourers ,Farmers and Tradesmen, Government Departments, Mining Companies, large and small businesses can benefit from the added payload capacity. With the ever increasing possibility of litigation under common law if a vehicle is operated beyond its legal Load Limits an approved GVM increase in an almost essential upgrade.
USING SUPERIOR ENGINEERING OUTBACK ADVENTURER – UPGRADE KIT, (FEDERALLY APPROVED) HELPS AVOID THESE PROBLEMS.
APPROVAL: 50311 – 200 LANDCRUISER – 5, 7, 8 Seat (Model Dependant)

|3900||VDJ200R – GNTEZQ||5 or 7|
Should the Seating capacity need to be decreased, the center rear 3rd row seat belts may be required to be removed.
WHAT AMOUNT OF INCREASE SHOULD YOU EXPECT?
Officially sanctioned GVM Kit provides:
GVM to 3900kg
GVM increase of 550kg
WHAT TOWING CAPACITY AM I ALLOWED?
A Full 3500KG Braked tow capacity
750kg un-braked towing
Is the GCM Upgraded?
GCM (Gross Combined Mass) is used by vehicle manufacturers in sales brochures noting the combination of GVM and BTC. Please Note: The GCM (Gross Combined Mass) doesn’t form part of a Superior Engineering Approval for Second Stage Manufacture. There is currently no federal government approved test to upgrade the GCM.
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 200 SERIES LANDCRUISER is 3500kg. This doesn’t increase nor decrease when a Superior Engineering Outback Adventurer Kit with GVM Upgrade is fitted, it remains at 3500kg.
The new vehicle GVM becomes 3900kg (200 SERIES LANDCRUISER) as noted in the Superior Engineering SSM (Second Stage of Manufacture Upgrade). An important factor that must be considered is the ball weight of the towed apparatus. When towing – whatever the measured ball weight is, it must be subtracted from the vehicles GVM.
GCM is not noted or listed as part of our Approval within this vehicle Category (LC200 NB1).
Current Federal laws determine that GCM is to remain unchanged from the Original Manufacturers specifications. Some states within Australia may allow a GCM upgrade Post Registration under state laws.
WHEN SHOULD AN OUTBACK ADVENTURER UPGRADE KIT BE FITTED?
