4x4 pickup tippers - which have best capacity

Recommended Posts

Lots and not a lot.  In terms of buying and fitting a kit, it takes about 3 hours to fit a set (However that is us as a manufacturer with the vehicle already stripped down and just before the new sub frame gets craned on).  As far as i understand it, because the uprating changes the GVW you have to re-register it with DVLA.  With our process on making these changes to brand new, unregistered vehicles and because we have achieved NSS Type approval for it and have manufacturers approval we don't have any issues.  However, not all manufacturers will allow an uprating so you will have to be careful on which you choose to do.  If you'd like any further info please call our office on 01536 529876.


Thank you very much for that and I will certainly give you a call. The truck I would like to do is a dmax so I'm assuming it should be fine to do. For me it was more just finding out if there was anything other than some airbags suspension such as up rated brakes and if the vehicle would then have to be 're tested or if you could simply 're register with proof of parts fitted.
