I have been driving one for a year now, drive thru issue is well documented (and really not a big deal), parking structures are a reach (across the passengers seat) and dogs are pretty much way cooler than you are when they are 'driving'.

agreed with the whole talking to hot girls at a stop light, has served me well in Newport.

I haven't run into any situations that I wished I had a LHD, more the opposite,

Good luck finding your truck!

Best part is asking your passengers, 'So you're gonna drive?'

I have driven 100k miles on the right and have never been pulled over for that. Been pulled over twice in RHD trucks, once for an expired safety inspection, and once by a board member here who is a policeman for fun.
That said I have been pulled over where Eric lives in my old 110. I think they just get board in Eastern NY state.

That's great!

My daily driver is a LHD automatic V8 90 but I always look forward to switching on the weekends and nice weather days to my RHD 110 2.5NAD. A totally different experience. I no longer get why someone would go through a conversion unless maybe they were planning to use it everyday and they've tried the RHD thing and just hate it with a passion.

Good Luck Adam I hope you find a great truck and let us all know what your final decision was.

Your biggest problem is with the ladies as they will think you're British...

In some cases I could imagine that is seen as a benefit.
