    For me, it wasn't so much driving a manual transmission RHD(that was easier to get use to than expected). It was doing so while driving on the right side of the road(merging, toll booths, drive-through's, etc.). I would think the hardest part would be driving on the "wrong" side of the road ;) Especially while driving on the "wrong" side of the vehicle, haha :)
    Traction, articulation, and gearing make a good off-road rig. Just a big lift, wide mud tires, and a winch simply do not ;)

    Besides what's been said, the other thing to keep in mind is the turn signal and wiper stalks are reversed. In other words, to signal left, move the right stalk up. To signal right, move the right stalk down. Use the left stalk to operate the wipers.

    Or, if you're from Massachusetts, don't bother using your turn signals at all.

    You got me beat, as mine had luxuries like a 3-speed "on the tree", floor dimmer, manual choke, with an AM(not "stereo") radio ;)

    Since we can only look in one direction at a time, we look in the direction of immediate concern first. That would be traffic approaching on the near side of the road that you're entering, from your left in the case of US roads. Oncoming traffic from the left is the primary concern, so we look that way FIRST, then we look to the right. That is reversed when the traffic pattern is the opposite of what we're used to.

    But you know that and were just kidding, right?
