Dumb rhd question

Are there right Hand drive wjs?

And secondly, is everything backwards? i.e. accelerator on the left, brake on the right, etc?

Just curious...

Of course there are....I have one. There are about forty(?) countries that drive on the left. Pedals are the same way round as yours.

I thought I'd seen one before. Couldn't remember. So accelerator is still right foot?

Yes, just imagine cutting and pasting the driver's side to the passenger's side.

Except they keep the center console the same so your e-brake is actually close to you.

But my transfer case levers (247) are the oposite way round to that picture.....PRND4321 on the left and 4lo n 4Hi on the right. Annoying that the lever I need most is furthest away!

Interesting. Thanks for humoring me. Like I said earlier, I'd thought I'd seen RHD WJ's but couldn't remember and I'd never paid attention to pedal placement before.

Really? Pic please.

I've got RHD too, but I have never seen the tranny sticks swapped around like you say.

Here ya go. Sorry about all the dust. Bag of rubble split and fell over on the way to the tip.....crap everywhere!
See what I mean about the levers though?! The gear shifter is the furthest from me....right hand drive.

I never knew that option. I do now. Don't think we have that in Australia.
