Right Hand Drive

Any Mail Carriers on here using the JK model on their Mail Route?
How do you like it?
Thinking of trading for a newer model.

Doing it on the left side in Kanazawa, Ishikawa Japan.

Riding a motorcycle is the only time in my existence when I can completely lose myself only to find myself.

It's not the destination.........

It's the ride!

the right hand drives are only offered in automatic.......I doubt the Postal Service will be buying any but the rural mail carriers who use their own vehicle might like them! I know of some RHD Cherokees out in farm country!

Interesting info tidbit concerning RHD Jeeps - I was looking through my extended warranty and it notes that the extended warranty is not available for RHD vehicles. I guess they just assume that they are in commercial (postal) use or for the export market. So, if you want an extended warranty, don't get the RHD version (:

My local dealer tried to use the unlimited powertrain warranty as a selling point. I told him he better look closer at the warranty on RHD models. 3/36

Here in Japan, if you want a 6-speed manual, you have to get a Rubicon.
They are all right hand drive. Sahara and X only come with automatics.

Thanks for the info!!! I sort of figured that was where 1st was, but wasn't sure.....probably same 6-speed thats in LHD models.....That would be really different for me to shift ...
