Will....

Explain the squeak a bit more. I have a late '99 (model year 2000) but it doesn't squeak.

I do know of one guy whose Isuzu Trooper's rear door (yep... an american Jackaroo) rattled but nothing seemed loose. He got around the rattle by disassembling the plastic wedge that is under the larger door and inserted a stiffer spring in that assembly. I assume this wedge is to hold the door in place vertically when shut and the stiffer spring holds it against the steel plate on the sill a bit firmer than the old spring and thereby reducing any movement. The spring cost him $1 or 2, plus his own labour.

I reckon this wedge may also wear out over time too. So it may be worth keeping an eye on it.

Will,
I had two Jackaroos in the past, the noise from the back doors can be corrected by adjusting the latch, it is also a good idea to spray silicone every time you wash it.

Eventually I saw the light and bough a Patrol, 130000kms so far and lots of corrugations and no problems, but I must admit that I adjusted them using the skills I gained from so many Jackaroo rattles...

Hi Will,

How did you adjust the latch? I have no plans on getting rid of my Jackaroo yet, so I'd like to be aware of how to do these things.

There is a slight drumming noise from the doors on very rough bitumen.

Savvas,

Its not easy to explain without showing you, but there are two main latches top and bottom that you can adjust and that is after you adjust the small door first as the large one latches onto the small one...

You need a very good and strong phillips head bit and attach it to a wrench, don't try it with a cheap one as you will damage the head.
