Military trailers with 1/4-ton capacity are designed to be used with the Truck, 1/4-ton 4x4, best known as the jeep. Since the original jeep development in 1940, each model of jeep had a 1/4-ton trailer designated to be used with the vehicle for additional cargo space or more specialized uses. Wheels and tires were the same on the jeep and the trailer, providing more capability to recover from a flat tire or damaged wheel.
