Right Hand Drive With A Manual?

Ok so I came across a rural route mail TJ RHD for sale earlier this week, so naturally I started looking around online. The only ex-mail wranglers I can find for sale/sold are base automatics.

Then I found this guys YJ Sahara he lists as a 4.2 5 speed:

So is it imported or...?

I can hardly find any info on RHD YJs or RHDs with manuals, I figured somebody might know what the deal is.

I would try to get the VIN and then you can decode.

That YJ seems like it's north American spec. No fog light, so side markers, no amber strip in the tail light. I'd say that was a mail carrier ride.

That said, your TJ you're looking at is likely the same thing. If anything, a manual shifter is ambiguous to whatever hand drive the Jeep is.

Look at the vehicle requirements in countries that use RHD vehicles. If this TJ lacks them (fog light, amber turn signals, bumpers, etc.) then its a domestic vehicle. Heck, the speedo alone will tell you a lot in a glance (MPH or KPH).

Here's an export model YJ. Note the fog light (red light on rear bumper) and the tri colored tail light. Also there are amber side marker lights in the quarter panels.

Good info about the specs varying by country, I just figured import because of the manual trans and the front plate. I have find to see a stickshift mail jeep, YJ TJ or otherwise.

Hell it's got Michigan plates, if I see it around ill check it out and take pictures. lol

The export YJs also had extra turn signals on the front of the fenders. The TJs had the turn signals there stock.

Left hand shifting would be a challenge for me. Are the pedals still clutch, brake, gas from left to right?

Every manual rental I've driven internationally has had same pedal layout. Shifting with your left hand comes easier than you'd think.

I have talked (over the internet) with some Europeans and have a couple of friends who have driven JDM imports. From what I have gathered is that the pedals are the same as here, clutch brake gas in that order. The main difference is in LHD the turn signal stalk is on the left side of the wheel, in RHD the turn signal stalk is on the right side of the wheel.

I was in Europe and wanted to try driving RHD vehicles. Would have been a challenge I think.

I still struggle with the JK instruments (wipers) all the time. Between the dash window switches and that, I feel like an old man.

RHD JK's have their turn and lights and wiper controls on the same sides as LHD versions ..... ie, indicator stalk is on the left. Pedals are the same layout LHD as RHD, centre console is the same LHD to RHD.
Differences are the dash and our RHD wipers sweep up to the right side. Under the hood, brakes and battery positions are reversed.

This was true for TJs and WJs as well.

You are probably having a hard time finding a manual tranny in a RHD wrangler because most were probably post office vehicles. It would suck to clutch and shift while delivering mail to each mailbox 30 feet away from each other.....

Yeah, but eventually you'll get a bruise on your left knee from where the shift knob keeps whacking it!
