my design will incorporate the sensors as well. the difference will be that the sides bolt on and the spare tire carrier will be on the drivers side so you can still see out the rear window.....

i'm going to add some LED lights into the bumper for tail lights. because once the tire is there, you can see that you cannot see the tail-lights.

If you put the tire carrier on the driver's side it will block the backup camera and will not give any more rearview mirror vision than if it was on the other side.

I agree with Jeep5253 and the tire on the passenger side would also cause less leveraged weight on the swing away hinge. I would not be bothered by the blockage thru the rear window because I often carry objects that block the inside rear view anyway and I use the mirrors usually or the backup camera when backing. Losing the backup camera would inpact me more than the view.
