I just saw this going down 31 in Muskegon. I can't say I have ever saw a right drive Cherokee before today. I wonder where it came from. Anybody know the story?

One goes by my house everyday delivering the mail. Our rural carrier bought it from the postal department. Also know someone that had one and took it on trail rides up north. Seems like he was always getting in on the wrong side.:sonicjay:

When our mail lady got a newer one, she had me swap over the rhd controls. The setup on hers uses a V-belt and pulleys for the steering, and levers/linkage to operate the pedals. It looks bootyfab as hell. Next time it comes in for repair, I'll get some pics.

Never mind, Google FTW.

Yeah I've seen a few of those, around Fair Haven/Algonac area I believe I've seen RHD TJs as well.
One of the Pontiac sites I'm on there's a few owners of original RHD first gen Firebirds and others, of course they live in Australia and stuff.

With the size of the pulleys, there is plenty of surface area. The problem is the tiny bearings in the flimsey stock steering column. They are not meant for that kind of side load. And reaching the turn signals.
