It drives great, good on fuel. its done 400,000kms and the engine 75,000 (water pump failure killed the old one) no problems so far.

hello all

I am new to this site and have read previous posts in the forum before signing up when we started rebuilding our 1988 jackaroo engine.

I thank members here as some posts have been very helpful.

If I knew how to upload photos to this forum I would post pic's of our beast who looks very sad at the moment in pieces :cry:

I joined this site as we are now stuck with this rebuild and We are tired of receiving responses from mechanics in the real world of our local area who shy, cringe or ark up when the word Jackaroo is mentioned.

nice to meet you all :)

Formerly known as Westoztroopa...

Hi all,

Been a while since I've been here. Sorry for the lack of imagination with the new username. :D Actually only just sold the Jackaroo Shorty (see page one). Definitely came close to shedding a tear when the Jack drove out the driveway... Was such an awesome 4x4! :armsup:

All good things come to an end though and you will be happy to know that I have remained with the Isuzu team. Just over a year ago I purchased a new 2008 3.0tdi Single Cab Rodeo 4x4. Very good and reliable it has been so far too. No extreme mods at this stage - just canopy, bullbar, spotties etc. First mod will be a 50mm suspension lift. Not aiming to modify to the extent of the Jack but who knows?? :roll:

Just got myself a Jackaroo Monterey V6 petrol as a daily driver, family car. Keep the Patrol purely for camping/offroading.

Great to drive but managed to run out of fuel and now check engine light is on

Weve had a range of vehicals to play with that we have built up together starting with an FJ40 series, 55 series, numerouse 60 series cruisers, a couple of Patrols, Suburus, Suzuki's, Datsuns, Range Rovers, and now a KB Rodeo!
