Ironman GVM upgrade for Jimny doubles payload

Ironman GVM upgrade for Jimny doubles payload

New GVM upgrade suspension kit from Ironman 4x4 doubles the current-gen Jimny's payload.

Ironman 4x4 has released a GVM upgrade suspension kit for the current Suzuki Jimny.

The kit lifts the maximum allowable vehicle weight from a paltry 1435kg up to 1785kg, with revised axle loading limits of 800kg front and 1100kg rear. The OE payload was just 340kg, so the higher GVM rating increases the payload to allow you to carry more and or fit more/heavier accessories. That’s double the payload!

TWO-SEATER: Two-seat Jimny released to beat emissions regulations

The suspension upgrade includes a set of four Ironman 4x4 Nitro Gas shock absorbers; four coil springs; extended brake hoses; an extended headlight sensor bracket; front crossmember drop brackets; amended tyre placard reflecting higher-rated tyres; and a Second Stage Manufacturer (SSM) Compliance Plate for pre-registration fitted GVM kits only.

INDUSTRY INSIDER: Ironman 4x4

The upgraded kit is said to improve the ride quality and handling of the little Jimny, while increasing ride height around 45mm above standard.

The federally approved GVM upgrade kit can be fitted pre-registration or to existing registered GJ Jimnys, but it still requires engineering sign-off by your state authority.

Prices start from $2571 and the kits are available from Ironman 4x4 stores nationwide.
