Purely a guess, but I could see owners of 53 and earlier trucks asking their
dealers to install a side mount spare tire carrier (which the dealer
certainly could have ordered from the factory) after the option first became
available. I could also see the owners requesting that the carrier be
installed on the passenger side for safety reasons. If you are going to be
removing a spare from one of these carriers, it would certainly be safer to
be working on the off road side.

I know some members think this discussion is probably going on too long, but
I love this kind of historical research/speculation.
