First off welcome.

Second, the Gen 1 guys are mostly on www.NLOC.net
or FB



Third, please don’t go 4x4 with a right hand drive Gen 1!!!! That is awesome. I’d love to own one here in the states.

I wouldn't have thought a RHD gen 1 would even be wanted in the US.
It was ordered new in 1995 from the guy i bought it off converted to RHD the rest
is factory stock except the hard lid he got made with hydraulic lifter rams, i't done
about 80,000 miles since new, the only thing i haven't sorted yet is the electric seats
but i have them right back anyway.
Thanks for the reply, still want to go 4x4 as we don't get any 4x4s with power worth talking about
and late model trucks from the US are so overpriced here it's stupidity, we don't have F trucks still
get Chevs 2019 starting price 130,000 base model 4 door.
