Jeep will make a RHD wrangler & wrangler unlimited in right hand drive, but I have never seen any in the USVI. Why is that? It sucks driving on the wrong side of the car! I plan to bring 2 RHD rigs when we move to STT, so why not anyone else?

It's really no big deal that's why......

I like to see when I am about to drive on someone's roof! And Isl girl is right, it is no big deal.

Wrong side of the car? That's funny!
At least, the driver gets to see how close to the edge of the road he is with our left hand driving.
In New Zealand they drive on the left but the steering wheel is on the right. That's weirder.

That's how it is supposed to be. It makes it easier to pass, although the USVI way means you get out on the sidewalk side!

Also anything you would do from the window will be on the other side of the car. Like atm, gate keypads etc.

That's not the case here for us with LHD but if they bring a RHD vehicle that's what they'll be having to deal with in terms of using all those devices. Try going to the drive thru at bank! You'll be constantly hopping into the passenger seat to get things done.
Best to avoid the future hassel and just go with the flow of our normal left hand driving.

This is a much better setup on STT or STJ where sticking to your side of the road is done much more than passing people.
