Hmmm.. what about the Number plate.. ?? It affects that position right
Even if you move the number plate to another location like the sides i dont think that would be legal as visibility of the number will be bad at nights.

You also need to factor in the rear washer/wiper. Might need a good bit of metal work IMHO.
@zenopios: any pics of the scorps with the rear wheel mounted? might help badboyscad.

it covers the whole old location of the number plate after the wheel is mounted ...the number plate will be shifted under the back door handle that too a square white colour sticker on it number will be written......

OK.. That gives a rough idea but i think the rear visibility is goin to reduce drastically.. something like the Safari.. I can hardly make out what is behind the vehicle

and IMHO it will look cool if its mounted not in the centre but more on the RHS of the vehicle.

Agree with Godfather here. Mounting it on the right gives it a more SUVish look. Something like the Pajero or LC.
