We’ll cover below
the points that you need to know about our F150 pickup truck RHD conversions (& ADR Compliance) and RHD
conversions in general.
We will cover
these relevant topics:
How much conversion experience do we
Is there a warranty and what is it if
What is the quality of the finished
control: How is the
quality controlled over time?
of ours: What are the
differences to other conversions out there?
conversion experience dates back to the late 1980’s, we have been performing Right Hand Drive conversions ever
If you are buying
an F150 from us, then we provide a 3 Year vehicle warranty, backed by US Autos Sydney. Please call us
for more details. We do not 'add' more costs for buying that warranty like some others do.
We also have
online access for:
- Service Manuals
- VIN decoding
- And more Ford F150 direct data information
Below is how we,
after nearly thirty years of performing RHD conversions, do our conversions to the highest standards,
so that it not only is cosmetically correct, but even more importantly drives correctly and does everything it
should do as it did when it was Left Hand Drive, and still does so for hundreds of thousands of kilometres of
driving and use:
system utilises part of the OEM electric steering rack that is standard on these new Alloy Body
It uses billet
parts and incorporates the ESC factory functions so it is a seamless transition to RHD.
It has the same
feel, steering lock to lock, steering geometry, durability and turning circle of the original vehicle.
The system though does not, by design, use the
following (like some others out there):
- It does
not move components on the F150 engine, which can result in thrown serpentine (fan) belts, at the
worst possible times, and it does not utilise a
non-genuine Ford F150 serpentine (fan) belt, it uses the original F150
- It does
not utilise ‘home-made’ or ‘one-off’ steering parts
- It does
not utilise modified tie rods, or tie rods from different makes/models, which besides possibly causing
incorrect steering geometry, could be a real hassle when maintenance or replacement of these ‘one-off’
items is required.
- It does
not use two right angle mitre boxes behind the firewall that some use. This can cause issues such
as less room for the HVAC system (air conditioner) which can result in a lower flow rate, can also cause
the steering wheel not returning to centre after turning a corner. We have seen these systems with
excessive amounts of wheel alignment negative 'camber' in a crotch to attempt to compensate for
this possible issue, which still does not work as factory and can cause excessive front tyre
- It does
not have a non-factory steering geometry, or incorrect steering geometry (ours is exactly factory
specs), which can cause bad driver control of the vehicle through ‘bump steer’ issues and worse, right down
to high rates of premature front tyre wear and scrubbing.
Air-conditioning and Demister system
Our RHD F150
conversion utilises the factory HVAC box, modified to retain the original (OEM) F150 evaporator and heater
core. It also utilises the original servo motors for air ducting control. The demister system retains the
factory system in place, including the important demisting to the front-side drivers and passenger’s windows so
they demist the windows so the driver can still see out of the exterior mirrors high humidity times. The
original ducting is retained. Flow rates are comparable or higher than the OEM flow rates. The air conditioning
system also retains the volumetric efficiency, in other words it keeps the original HVAC volume to cool (or
heat) the volume of the interior cabin of the Dodge it was originally designed for. It retains the original
temperature rates for cooling (& heating) as original. It also does not, when in cooling mode, heat up in
conjunction with the engine temperature, as inferior RHD systems might due to poor design. It also retains the
‘split’ system of the original F150 models (when so equipped), with correct orientation of the dial Left and
Right, enabling the front system to be independent, Left to Right sides. It also retains the OEM Ford F150
pollen filter, which is serviceable from the engine bay very easily.
In point form, our air-conditioning/demister (HVAC)
- Retain the original (OEM) flow rates through all of
the dashboard air conditioning vents, and the demisting system.
- Retain the OEM Ford F150 pollen filter and in a
- Retain the original heater core and A/C evaporator
- Retain the OEM HVAC box, modified to RHD, and
original servo motors
- Retain the original volumetric flow for the cabin as
originally designed by the factory
- Retain the original ‘split’ system functions of the
F150 factory split (Left and Right side) climate control (when so equipped from the
The system though does not, by design (like some
others out there):
- It does
not (the cooling part of the air-conditioner/HVAC system) heat up (temperature rises) in relation to
engine temperature, which a poorly designed system will do.
- It does
not have decreased flow rates through the dash vents.
- It does
not combine the split system (when so equipped from the factory) into one system, unlike the original
OEM split system works
- It does
not have hand bent aluminium A/C lines, all new A/C lines are purpose manufactured from new lines.
Hand-bending of aluminium A/C lines can result in cracking from fatigue, causing loss of refrigerant and
the stopping of the A/C system functioning.
In short, it functions in
every aspect the same as what it did when in Left Hand Drive form.
Our Right Hand
Drive (RHD) dashboard/instrument panel is not a one or two piece fibreglass dash as has been around the
industry over the years.
Our RHD F150
dashboard retains the factory features, such as all demisting vents, hidden passenger’s airbag, the factory
Integrated Trailer Brake control (when so equipped), the factory placement, in exactly mirror location, of the
steering column, the factory mirrored placement of the handbrake release, the factory leatherette and
‘soft-touch’ feel of the upper dashboard assembly, and the factory gaps and tolerances of the dashboard. It
also has the 4-wheel drive and power outlet mirrored in placement so the driver can easily reach the 4 wheel
drive electronic selector switch, as per the factory dashboard.
Our Right Hand
Drive F150 dashboard/Instrument Panel does not have the
not utilise a fibreglass dashboard.
not delete the hidden passengers airbag as produced by the factory, our RHD dashboards utilise the same hidden
passengers airbag on the top left side of the dash, no ugly airbag ‘lids’ that are very noticeable and/or of poor
quality design. Our dashboard retains the hidden airbag on the passenger’s side.
not delete the factory ‘Integrated Trailer Brake Controller’, it retains it, and locates it in an exact
mirrored placement, just as the factory placement was when in Left Hand Drive form.
not delete the ‘soft-touch’ feel of the upper dashboard, our RHD F150 dashboards retain the padded section
beneath the factory type leatherette material.
not have non-factory gap’s, our RHD Ford F150 dashboard retains factory gaps for an overall very high
not have non-factory steering column placement, which results in the steering wheel being out of centre to the
driver and the driver’s seat. It is in centre to the driver’s seat, as per the factory.
Other parts of the RHD
- Firewalls: laser-cut and folded, fully welded and
factory colour painted
- Factory metric instrument clusters utilised (200
- Engine bay wiring is not reworked, is as original
and tidy as was factory.
- No A/C lines hand bent, all are purpose manufactured
- Wiper system is mirrored and new RHD arms are
utilised, not hand-made wiper arms.
The passenger exterior mirror is altered
for drivers view by utilising a factory looking ‘wedge’ which repositions it for correct driver viewing,
without having to re-do the locking system, for a factory look, or worse, not having it modified at
We are an
ISO 9001:2008 Quality Assured Company with which means that our
Quality Management System has been developed and implemented to the highest standards. We have regular Quality
Control audits, which ensure consistent quality methods.
We are also:
- A Federally Licenced ‘Test Facility’ (by V.S.S. Department of the Federal Government)
- A Federally Licenced ‘Production Facility’ (by V.S.S. Department of the Federal Government)
- A Federally Licenced ‘Design Facility’ (by V.S.S. Department of the Federal Government)
Our conversions go through a rigorous standard of quality control on all systems. This starts
before, and then during the conversion process. Once RHD converted however, it is then checked
several times, firstly by one of our staff, then by our Engineer or Vehicle Inspection Signatory,
then by an RTA approved AUVIS station (if to be registered in NSW), and then again by the State or
Territory registration authority with a 'third tier'
inspection (RMS if in NSW). Our conversion company is ISO9001:2008 Accredited, which means you
have another fifth method of quality control.
Benefits of our RHD
Resale value. Our RHD Converted F150’s will retain a high resale due to the quality and longevity of our
company in the RHD conversion industry. We’ve seen many companies come and go since 1989 when we first
began it all, few have the experience and longevity to be there down the road in years to come, and that
affects resale value in a positive light for our customers and their vehicles. There are a lot of new companies
coming into this market to make profits, how long will they be around? who knows…
We back up what we do. Our RHD conversions are performed by our experienced RHD conversion staff, and are
not ‘farmed out’ to someone else partly or wholly, or overseas. Any warranty work, if that should arise, is
performed by our staff, unlike some who are just ‘salesman’ selling a conversion performed by someone else,
here or overseas. A few have likely never converted anything themselves ever, so how do you expect to have them
perform specialist warranty work by them farming it out to generalised non-specialist mechanical workshops and
have it correctly performed?
In short, our RHD conversion experience has enabled us to deliver a
factory experience for the owner after our RHD conversion. It
- All of the road feel, drivers steering feel, for
hundreds of thousands of kilometres, as proven by hundreds of vehicles we have RHD converted since
- The factory turning circle, steering geometry, and
original parts replacement. The steering system is just as the factory steering for feel and road
performance and geometry.
- Factory air conditioner and demisting vents, and
factory air-conditioning performance.
- Factory finish and cosmetically correct RHD
dashboard, without deletion of vital parts needed by the driver for safety, and mirrored placement of
controls for easy driver reach, for comfort and safety.
- Other factory items, such as hidden passengers
airbag, soft touch dash feel, factory dashboard gaps, are not deleted but
We have a very high level of customers who come back year
after year to have us do their next American vehicle, and a high level of referrals by prior customers to new
customers, so we know we can do the same for you.
