It’s so nice to see the John Deere 8R Series North American version for Farming Simulator 19. The base for this FS 19 mod, is the original John Deere 8 series model that came with the game.
After the release of the game, Custom Modding went to work.
They basically took the model apart, replaced a whole lot of parts before putting it back together again. The result? An Americanized version of many players’ favorite tractor.
This is some of the things that Custom Modding has done to the JD:
- The original turn signals have been replaced by a set more accurate to the region.
- Some of the lights have been replaced too. And the tractors have gotten the typical red and orange warning triangle to the rear.
- It’s possible to equip the tractor with an American 3-point hitch.
- You can also customize the tractor’s fenders.
Finally, Custom Modding has provided the tractor with the well-known US styled front weights, as well. You can choose how many weight brackets it shall have in the shop
You can unfold the flashers with the “X” button.
