Why does the drive shaft in stock form come off the right side shaft, what capability do you lose if any by connecting to center shaft.

The only downside to moving it that I have ever heard was a clearance issue with the stock gas tank when the rear axle is swapped out for, say, a Chevy 14-bolt. The stock axle has the differential offset to the passenger side a bit, so it is not an issue unless you swap in a rear axle with the differential centered. It may have even fit (barely). Haven't done it myself though.

I think the benefits would easily outweigh the drawbacks though.
