  1. Hi John, I've been thinking about getting a LC200 with 400kg GVM upgrade. Wasn't sure if they would be too rough around city when not towing my Kedron?? What system upgrade did you get? I wanted to put a tinny on top and have a bullbar...drawers weren't necessary for us.

      Hi Glen we have used a Lovell upgrade (NSW company) installed by Statewide 4x4  in Keilor East Victoria. GVM is increased by 450 klg to 3800 klg. The ride around town is a little firmer but I believe the car handles better. All of my driving life I have had firm suspensions on all vehicles so I do not mind the firm ride. Looked at an ARB upgrade however the only offered a GVM increase to 3550 klg. If you are purchasing a new 200 series it would be advisable to have the upgrade done before you register the car. My understanding is this then makes the car accepted Federally. My upgrade is accepted nationally under Victorian registration because it was already registered at the time of the upgrade.  If I was to sell my car interstate it would require another Engineers report in that state whereas if it was done prior to registration it is recognised Australia wide. (sounds like hog wash but that's how it was explained to me)

      Pity you live interstate otherwise would have been happy to give you a test run.

      My 200 series is used constantly around town. Still an absolute pleasure to drive with very little fuss. Makes more sense than my mates GMC around town.

      Hope my reply helps your decision mating

      Warm Regards
