You also wouldn't have to remove the jerry can to siphon it into your fuel tank from this side. Not that it would be hard just to pour it down the tank either. My Slee rear bumper had the tire centered, which I preferred for weight balance, and it swung out to the right (passenger side). I never thought too much about it then, but if that thing was swung out into the traffic, that wouldn't be fun if someone hit it. Of course it had to swing completely out to clear the tail gate, so it was pretty much 100% off the side of the vehicle at that point when fully open. This would be too. I can special order a 2nd tire carrier for the LH side if people are interested too.
