    Default No JMC Category or threads

    So I don't see any categories for JMC bakkie owners nor any threads. Maybe I am just not looking in the right place.

    But surely a category for JMC should be added to the Technical Talk area. I've seen a few of these bakkies on the road and would love to hear from JMC owners. I also see they have a new bakkie being released into the market as I'm typing.

    You can buy a 4x4 double cab for 190k... say what! And it has leather seats.

    Imagine the long, hard, intense monologues that could be had on eg trade-in values.

    From the little I have heard, no real big complaints so far on these bakkies.
    Obviously trade-in values would come up.
    I am more interested in the quality of the vehicle, ride, reliability, issues, and service from JMC.

    So if there are any JMC bakkie owner out there, willing to stick their necks out and give us some feedback on these bakkies.

    @ Site admin - How's about adding a Category for JMC owners maybe?

    I bought my JMC 2.8 TD 4x4 Double Cab in 2011. I was warned by certain people that I would be buying a Chinese rattler. So here's the report:

    Isuzu moved their KB factory to China and produced this bakkie. It's an Isuzu KB 280 with a new nose, lights and trim. The doors and cab are Isuzu. The chassis is the same as the Isuzu KB.

    The vehicle is used in the Karoo and runs on dirt a lot. It has an excellent ride over corrugations and bad dirt. I have yet to bottom the suspension as I have on my Isuzu Frontier fitted with gas shocks. No rattles yet after 8 years on bad roads. The load has varied from bricks, coal, sand, cement and tiles which were fetched in George, 400km away over two passes towing a double axle trailer of 500kg loaded with 1900 kg tiles and 500kg grout, cement and tiles in the back of the bakkie. Climbed the Outeniqua and Theekloof passes with this load in 2nd and 3rd gear. Also used to transport olives to Leeu Gamka for pressing using a double axle trailer.

    Features - The bakkie has lockable front wheel hubs, a five speed box with a low and high range transfer box. The seats are leather and all the luxuries present - electric windows, air con, and a sound system which is now outdated. Reversing radar that lights up in the mirror. Rubberised bak. The headlight height can be adjusted from the drivers seat. Fog lamps as well.

    Service - Because I was so far from a JMC dealer, they agreed that warranty services could be done at any RMI registered independent. My warranty claims of a headlight failing and a temperature gauge reading randomly were dealt with promptly and without a fuss.

    Cons - Noise insulation. The bakkie is quite loud but then it is intended as a commercial vehicle.

    Feel free to ask more.

    Car magazine had a JMC double cab in their long term fleet for a while. Not sure if it was 4x2 or 4x4 though.

    Never heard of them until this thread. Their DC is actually a nice looking bakkie. Pity there are no powerful ones for a little more money. 84 kW & 235 Nm isn't much these days......but for less than R200k......

    There is no category because, until recently, Jialing Motor Corp did not offer a 4x4...
    But maybe Dirk can start considering it... After all he started a GWM section.
    The GWM section was started when Dirk copied the Isuzu section.
    He can do the same here...

    Apparently the diesel engines are the 2.4 Defender Puma (Ford) engines.

    No problem, its common knowledge that if someone cannot afford or drive a specific vehicle they become motoring journos in order to criticize them...........

    For the record, the JMC Boarding is using an Isuzu 4JB1 engine. There is even ISUZU written on the block.
