    Why would some one spend $22,000 to convert the truck to Right hand drive ?

    it was probably intended for export originally, or somebody at the dealership ticked the wrong option box and never realized the mistake until the truck was unloaded in the yard at the dealership. If you wanted it that way, GM would build it for you.
