My theory is that when Willys decided to put the spare on the right rear of the jeep so that they could put a tailgate in and not have to deal with the spare at that location they decided that there probably wasn't enough room. That corner of the tub is kind of boxed in on a CJ and it was even boxed in on the other side when the lefty's were being produced. The reinforcement for the spare would have taken up some of the storage space so they just decided it just wasn't worth the expense.

Just a photo I came across on the internet. 

I suspect they are waiving at the "sand surfers" being towed behind the Jeep.

Imagine the heat buildup where the boards drag on the sand.   I wonder.
