LHD conversion from RHD

Defender 110 LHD conversion from RHD.
Just curious if anyone has seen this done? Im sure its not impossible but of course it comes down to desire, money and parts available among other things

Yes it is very common and will definitely increase the value of your truck.

Yes, it can be done, but why not just wait out the market for a good LHD? Fwiw, one of the overseas restorers had been posting about their LHD conversion parts kits earlier in the year, but he never posted a price & you never know about the quality until it's too late to do anything about it. And if you aren't going to be selective about who you hire it out to, you would be much better off sending ME the $5-$10k so I can blow it on strippers.

Cowboys right buy a lhd truck. I converted one and would do another now because I have all the parts but it is a bigger project then you'd think and you find a whole mess of work to do while its apart. Probably won't do a third.

How much $ for a complete set of parts for a LHD conversion? Are these new parts that you are having manufactured or used parts that you are gathering up?

We take a lhd vehicle and break it for the parts. Cost of the kits vary, normally between 2500 to 3000 + shipping. Kits contain the fully dressed bulkhead and steering box.
