Farming Simulator 19 mods showcase: John Deere 8000 & 8000 Ten Series tractors by UNM Modding (Jukka.) The download link can be found further down on this page.
This is a fantastic FS 19 reproduction of the legendary John Deere 8000 and 8000 Ten series tractors. When introduced in 1994, the 8000 tractors were so far ahead it took many years for the competitors to catch up.
Did you know that the initial drawings for the 8000 tractors were done on the envelope of an airline ticket? Today, a digital version of this valuable piece of paper is displayed at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History…
The Farming Simulator 19 version of the John Deere 8000 series includes many customization options. You can add a 3-point linkage, a front weight carrier, or several suitcase weights to the front.
There are fender options too, like wider rear fenders or no front fenders at all, as well as several choices for the beacon lights. This John Deere has only Micheline tires. But there are 10 different wheel setups to choose from.
Inside the cab, you’ll find several moving parts. Most of the displays are animated too. And there are IC (In-Cab) controls for stuff like the steering wheel, the left door, and the display backlighting.
Another cool feature is how you can rotate the driver’s seat slightly to the right with a mouse or controller. The John Deere 8000 mod does also have custom audio, which is pretty awesome to hear.

Version 18.104.22.168 – Courseplay Friendly?
(Updated October 19, 2019) One of the coolest looking tractor add-ons has gotten even cooler. With the previous version, Michelin was the only brand. Now, Trelleborg and Lizard are included as well. The Lizard wheels are particularly beefy (see the image below…)
The updated version also includes new options for warning signs and one warning triangle.
Still, the best update is perhaps that the IC controls now are optional. This could help with the conflicts the IC script creates when combined with Courseplay and AutoDrive.
