They can be fitted to either or both sides.
Current H&S regulations means that the military have had to buy canvas lifting cradles to help short/weak/wussy military personel lift the wheel up onto its mount. god help them in a combat situation where there are nasty men with guns!

The sand coloured 110 DPV has a similar mount welded to the roll frame, but as that's a special forces rover, i suspect they manage to live without the canvas lifting strap.
