The Jeep DJ or Dispatcher Jeep has been made in many versions, very few where 4WD, and almost all where RHD. I think you would need to narrow it dow to what type of letter carrier you are getting, there where many small, or light duty "trucks" that many different departments used... I am not sure if Jeep manufactured more than just the DJ and it's variants, but I know they also sold well equipped CJ's and some awesome CJ8's
Wiki but I am pretty sure some out there

There were also the FJ-3, FJ-3A, FJ-8, FJ-9, and FJ-10. Good luck on finding any info on the last three since they were built by AMG after AMC sold the Government Projects division off. I have a customer who has a FJ-8C though.

About 2 years ago in another online Jeep group, a guy posted a picture of a truck he had. All he knew was it was a Jeep.. I belive it turned out to be either an FJ-3A or possibly an FJ-4. I took a screenshot of it on my old terminal. Wouldn't know where to start looking for it though. :naughty:
