Good question, I don't think dodge made ANY RHD dash pieces, no need to. It's a custom piece made up by the RHD shop here in New Zealand. A typical RHD conversion will set you back around $18-$25,000 USD. Not cheap. Depends on the options to. Like 2 power seats, power windows, console, dash, etc. So having them make the dash etc is all part of that. Not all LHD vehicles have shops that convert them, in fact, there are only around a dozen vehicles RHD conversion shops will do and they are: Dodge Rams, modern Dodge Challengers, Hummers, Ford F150s, F250s & F350s, Chev Silverados, Chev Suburbans, Chev Supercabs, Cadillac Escalades, 06/07 Ford Mustangs and GMC Sierras. Their main crust are big pick ups, definitely. The shops choose what they feel will sell well buy 1 vehicle then go about designing an identical dash and conversion kit but RHD. Once they are happy, they simply use that as a mold for future kits and use it as a template.



Cheers,
Carl
