M-416 1/4 Ton Trailer

The M-416 1/4 Ton Trailer was commonly used with the M-151 series jeeps. It followed the general design of the World War II Willys MB-T (and Bantam T3) 1/4 trailer and the post-war M-100 1/4 ton trailer. The main visual difference is the square top fenders on the M-416 trailer vs. round fenders on its predecessors.
