If you’re in the market for a right-hand drive (RHD) Jeep in America, it’s not quite as easy as perusing Craigslist or even shopping around local used car dealerships. A very select number of Americans own one, and they aren’t usually looking to get rid of it.
All hope is not lost, though. There are a few options for tracking down a RHD Jeep.
One way to find a RHD Jeep is to check with the US postal service. The USPS used RHD Jeeps until the mid ‘80s when they switched to the Long Life Vehicles that are still chugging along today. The only issue with this method is that a Jeep made somewhere between 1960 and 1980 may be in pretty rough shape.
A perhaps better way to find out is to seek out a car dealership that carries RHD Jeeps. These dealerships are few, but they do exist. This way gives you some benefits like more customized options and factory-made parts that you can trust.
While most people don’t have a need to buy a RHD vehicle, there are a small number that rely on them daily to get their job done such as rural postal workers. For them, having a RHD Jeep that provides easy access to mailboxes, extra cargo space and versatility is a necessity.
