RHD Raptor conversion means...



A 150k list? Wow. That's on top of the fact that, as Brett points out, this rough and ready rig is virtually impossible to drive in England. And the process is hardly straightforward. Ha ha! If this were me, I'd just do the headlight conversion and learn to live with the intricacies of driving on the wrong side...

If I was going to get a cool rig fro overseas, I'd want to keep the LHD anyway, just for the novelty. Same as I would a JDM car or something. But I guess when people have money... Ha ha!

Geez and to think I've been screaming the place down over here about all the places here in Oz who want $US125-130K for RHD converted 2017's. I'm about to sell off my very low Kilometer 2012 and buy the current model. I'll definitely not complaining given I may pick one up with a few miles on it for around $US100-110K.

Ok in this country for classic stuff, like 60's and 70's under the law, but the RMS (DMV) will give you a very hard time if you try to road register a modern car or truck unconverted. I'm sure plenty wouldn't bother if it was that easy over here as it generally is in the say UK. It's also pretty off putting driving LHD on the left side and a great way to put yourself in a dangerous headspace when you visit a right hand country and decided to drive there in a LHD vehicle.
