    JMC is another Chinese Bakkie manufacturer who uses old Isuzu's...

    But unlike GWM who copied Isuzu, JMC bought the old Isuzu molds...

    Yeah. Not too bad on the eye though. Engine specs disappointing though.

    One of my colleagues at work bought the JMC Boarding 4X4 Double cab. He seems quite happy. No frills workhorse and yes, it is the old Isuzu 2.8, even the same parts. I personally think it is a much better buy than a GWM as a budget option.

    I have a quote for a JMC Boarding S/C 4x2 Standard workhorse.
    On the Road cost: R143 780.00

    Need something to replace my aging 2000 KB280DT which has 408 000km

    The JMC is R55 000.00 cheaper than the Nissan NP300 2.5

    BUT I'll also save an additional R20k odd because I can just transfer the canopy & carrier from the KB280 to the boarding...

    Vowed I'd never buy Fong Kong, but it's an Isuzu & it's a R75k saving over the next best bakkie...

    Default Jmc

    OK, sent my old 2000 KB280DT to the JMC dealership on Hendrik Potgieter.
    Then I went with my brother who is a Diesel Mack - he services my fleet.

    Reversed parked the KB & got the salesman to reverse park the JMC Boarding S/C next to it.
    99% of the engine bay is exactly the same, the blower & aircleaner pipes differ slightly.
    The JMC lacks the sound cover that the Isuzu has over the tappet cover - the JMC has a plastic engine cover (a la the germans) which fell off when I touched it.
    The suspension is the same. But the diff is not a Gear Max, it's Fong Kong.
    The bak is exactly the same outside, the interior of the loadbin is 99% the same. The measurements are exactly the same.
    The doors & body panels look exactly the same. Just the front end differs.
    If you take your thumb & press the loadbin flanks just in front or just behind the rear wheel you notice Fong Kong Steel -
    The Isuzu steel barely moves, the JMC you can push in easily. It's significantly thinner.

    Obviously the interior differs as the JMC has a rip off of the 2003 - 2009 Isuzu dash.

    Took it for a spin. It was cold & if you know that KB280 Motor, it is noisy until warmed up.

    Took it up Doreen (very long steep hill) & klapped it. I'd just gotten out of my D-Teq so it took a while to adjust my perception,
    but it goes better than my KB 280, probably because it is so much lighter...

    All my previous vehicles I have driven for 180 000km odd before handing to a driver, except the KB300 which I bought 2nd hand.
    This one goes direct to a driver, I'll drive it for a week or so just to check it.
    But if I were to do 180 000km myself I wouldn't buy it!

    Anyhoo - placed the order....

    Now to find R143 000.00....

    It's not Isuzu. You can bet your botton dollar that the materials in use will not match the quality standards set by Isuzu. If used, that load bin is going to look like a corrugated sheet gone bad in nest to no time.

    Unless they bought the complete motor direct from Isuzu (and didn't cast it themselves) it won't last.....

    Here's one where I hope to be proven wrong, cause our local manufacturers needs somebody to force their prices down....

    Joint Venture Contract between Isuzu Motors and Jiangling Motors



    Isuzu Motors Limited (hereinafter called "Isuzu") announced that it has concluded a contract with Jiangling Motors Co., Group (head office: Nanchang, Jiangxi, China) for the production and sales of Isuzu pickups and their engines in China.
    Isuzu established Jiangling Isuzu Motors Co., Ltd. in 1993. At the expiry of the contract with Jiangling Isuzu Motors Co., Ltd., Isuzu has decided to reorganize the company as Jiangxi Isuzu Motors Co., Ltd. (tentative) to produce and sell high-end pickups and their derivatives in China, and thus to strengthen relations with Jiangling Motors Co., Group and further improve Isuzu pickup and other vehicle businesses in China. Isuzu has also decided to take a stake in the engine manufacturing company which has been fully owned by the Group, and reorganize it as Jiangxi Isuzu Engine Co., Ltd. (tentative) to produce and sell light-duty diesel engines.

    Isuzu expects to receive the new joint venture business licenses from the government in March 2013. Demand for pickups in the Chinese market has been steadily growing, and Isuzu is planning to produce and sell 100,000 pickups in China
