Pros and cons of right hand drive TJ?

Don't buy one. Too many parts are different. I don't even know who makes a track bar for a RHD TJ for instance. My advice is to stay away, unless you're delivering mail.
 
I was going to say it is annoying to shift with your left hand (bugged the heck out of me in UK on my numerous business trips). I was not thinking about the parts being different like Chris above mentioned. He is right, that would be a dilemma if you cannot find parts.
 
The biggest negative is always walking up to the wrong side to get in ..... oh, and turning on the wipers instead of the turn signals :)
 
Not too much fun trying to pass on a two-lane road either...

This.

I traveled to a developing country in the east that imported their cars from many different places. The result was that they drove on the right side of the road but had a 50/50 mix of cars that were right and left hand drive. Combine that with aggressive driving styles that have no regard for the rules and it was very dangerous. Even if everyone is following the rules you can't see around the car in front of you.

Really only steering and Panhard rod and how it mounts to the diff housings. There are a few adjustabPanhardard rod manufacturers in Australia, I hear a couple of steering systems will just flip to RHD fitment also. Everything else is the same.

Good information to know. I suppose in other parts of the world it might be easier to get those RHD parts. I'm not sure about here in the U.S.
 
I had a right hand drive Land Cruiser and it was cool for about 2 weeks then it just became annoying. Was easy to check the mail though.

Why don't we ask a very active forum member that owns one? @Kiwi TJ

Like @Daz7 said there are not many changes apart from the physically looking at it....even the signal and wipers storks are the same sides as the US Jeeps...( I have problems remembering when I jump in a normal car over here )
However
* Don’t buy foot pegs if you plan of running with the doors off..(you need your right foot for the ‘go’ pedal) :D
* Little annoying things like Bedrug carpet with the rubber footrest is on the wrong side and ( from what info I can gather so far you can’t get one made for RHD )
Other than that its fine but would take some getting used to when driving and parking...fun to watch faces of people when you pull up to lights and they see a 5 year old in what would be the drivers seat .:drive:

only advantage is if you live in India, Australia, the UK, Hong Kong, South Africa..... notice how these were all Commonwealth Nations?

Biggest disadvantages,,,, drive thru anything.
 
Got mats in there now held down with Velcro lol (been in there 5 years) ...wanted to get away from them if I can.

I've got the plastic moulded mats from Quadratec, really good.

I've had those mats in and out of a shopping cart at least 3 or 4 times but can't get past just not liking that big Quadratec logo on every one of them. Love the way they look tho. Maybe I need a mat to cover up the mat.
