It takes a special XJ to inspire me to shoot photographs for this series — a pink camouflage paint job, for example, or a tape-stripey Sport Cherokee with manual transmission. A right-hand drive, Japanese-market Cherokee qualifies, so let’s take a look at this one in a Denver self-service yard.

Then US Drive Right, an importer of right-hand-drive vehicles intended for postal-carrier use, brought it back to the United States.

The problems with driving a RHD vehicle in a LHD country come when you need to turn left or pass on a two-lane rural highway, and it looks like this truck’s driver wasn’t able to see that oncoming vehicle in time.

I’m betting the running gear in this truck was almost certainly grabbed soon after I shot these photos by a savvy junkyard customer who figured it drove to the accident.

Japan wasn’t the only right-hand drive place to get Cherokees.
