The Stage 1 kit includes a new heavy duty towbar assembly, dual height adjustable fabricated tongue and Lovells Haul Ace Hitch. The Stage 1 kit is rated to 3100kg braked towing capacity and the ball weight must not exceed 250kg. Note: due to the design of the tongue, the Stage 1 kit is not compatible with most weight distribution systems.
