ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

In the United States, we drive left-hand-drive vehicles on the right side of the road, unless you buy a new Jeep Wrangler. Currently, there are more than 400 new Jeep Wranglers featuring right-hand drive (RHD) for sale in the U.S.

That's right, you can buy the Jeep Wrangler in left- or right-hand drive. Allow me to repeat myself: You can walk into a Jeep dealership and choose between driving your Wrangler on the left, like a normal human being, or on the right, like a British person who shipped their Jeep Wrangler to America.

If you think this is incredibly strange, that's because it is.

Of course, Jeep has an explanation for it. Right-hand-drive Wranglers are intended for rural mail deliverers who need to deal with both intense climates (hence the Wrangler) and mailboxes mounted on the passenger side of the vehicle (hence right-hand drive). These postal workers don't drive to one spot in the neighborhood and walk around to all the houses, since each one of their deliveries can sometimes be several miles apart, so they deliver mail directly from their vehicles.

But do we really need this many right-hand-drive Wranglers? Right now, there are 428 new Wranglers listed on Autotrader as RHD. I'm not talking about new models plus a lot of used models that were retired at the end of their long postal careers. These 428 Wranglers are all completely new, undriven, zero-mile, right-hand-drive SUVs, just waiting for the passenger seat to carry a "U.S. POST OFFICE" tub with a Christmas card from Aunt Fran, in which she goes into detail about her foot rash.

Interestingly, you don't have to be a postal worker to buy one of these right-hand-drive Wranglers. If you want one, you can walk into any dealership selling one, pick it out and drive it home. Just ... be careful.
