Hello to all.
Did all trailers come with just the one tail light throughout production?

Assume you're asking about the Bantam trailer?  Art may have more detail.

The information I see on Arts website (including advertisements, trailer images, wiring, etc) suggest just one.

That would match the vehicles back then (I believe all early jeeps had just one tail light).  The wiring only has two prongs.

Many trailers show an additional cutout on the passenger side (mine included) to have a second tail light.  I'm using an accessory for my jeep (turn signals) so I'm keeping the second tail light on the trailer to enhance driving safety.

Ok, thank you!   Doing the usual "what year is this bantam t3c" game because of the missing data plate.  
I thought maybe the dual tail light may have been a late feature.

I have deduced mine is in the 13,500-30,000 range.  Based on springs, hitch, data plate holes and remnants.    Hard to narrow it down from there.   Any ideas?

I have #10599 and #16842 for comparison.
So I’m guessing you have the “H” type shackles ?
Got any pics of the front of frame rails where the tub attaches ?

Yes. H type shackles and later style squared off frame ends without the diagonal.   I may have some pics, just have to figure out how to post them as I’m new here.
