Just removed the front tyres from my recently acquired Jackaroo and lo & behold behind the nice chrome wheel cap there resides a fixed hub assembly ! I thought Jackaroos had auto free wheeling front hubs ?? Guess it's a trip down to ARB to get me a set of manual free wheel hubs.

also, did the late model V6 Petrol Jackaroos (2000 - 2004) ever come out as 5 speed manuals or were they all automatic transmissions ? I know the diesels were manuals.

Back to the mens shed for Easter. Cheers Old Mal

I have a 2000 model Jackeroo 3.5 v6 and they have 5 speed gearbox and auto locking free wheeling hubs. They also have LSD diff standard. I have had it for the last 6 years and without a doubt one of the best cars I have ever owned. The only thing ever to go wrong was some dirt got into a sensor in the air cleaner and it just didnt want to go. It would start but it jumped and farted until I got it to a GMH dealer to look at. We also tow a 16ft jayco around with no effort except it is a bit thirsty when towing about 18l/100k when cruising around 95 kmh

My 1999 Jackaroo SE 3.6 V6 had manual locking hubs.

G'day Old Mal, my 2000 auto has manual hubs, which pleases me no end. Cant see the point in all that gear going round for no purpose. Cant help re manual box'
although I think some diesels were also auto......oldbaz.

Yes the wide tracks(last series) where available in 5 speed manual(son has an 02) But the last series unfortunaly never come with free wheeling hubs, stupid mistake really. One of the reasons Swmbo o3 is thirsty I believe is the lack of free wheeling hubs plus extra weight. My old 98 has free wheeling hubs.
Mal did you know they all so have restrictors in the y piece of the exhaust. It is just like a little baffle put their mainly for nvh reasons, but I have removed them on my 98 for better economy and power and a bit more noise under full throttle.
Cheers Pete
