Farming Simulator 19 mod presentation: The Ford LTL 9000 truck by 5nine. Scroll down to the bottom of the showcase for the download link.
OMG! I believe 5nine has set a new record for customization options for an FS19 mod! I can’t remember seeing a mod with this many configuration possibilities. Not only that, each and every one of the choices makes sense.
It all starts with several versions of the Ford truck.
There’s a traditional semi.
Not just one, but 3 versions. Short, long, and longer… And you have four different head racks to choose from. It’s also worth mentioning that you can slide the 5th wheel back and forth with a mouse or a controller.
Then there’s a flatbed (with Autoload.)
There are two different flatbed versions. With or without a rear ramp. And there are two Autoload modes:
- Autoload full.
- And Autoload light.
The Autoload light mode can also be called semi-Autoload. If you choose this mode, the goods you want to load needs to be in a certain height above the ground for the Autoload to work. This is ideal when you, for example, want to collect bales manually in a field but want the Automation to take care of the stacking onto the bed.
Both Autoload modes work with standard pallets, square bales, round bales, egg boxes, cotton modules, and the round cotton bales from the John Deere Cotton DLC.
Here are the most common keys to use:
- Z = Sets what product to load.
- U = Activates and deactivates Autoload.
- B = Sets the unloading positions (guided by a marker.)
- Y = Unloads stuff.
The unloading positions are controllable (see the F1 Help menu.) It even lets you unload your goods in a rotated state…
Of course, there’s a Hooklift version.
This truck accepts most Hooklift applications. And if you want more than what the ITRunner mod pack by Giants offers, 5nine has more stuff on his web page.
And finally, a Dump Bed model.
This version has two dump options, full or halfway. The last option is helpful when you want to dump your load inside buildings or when emptying under a roof.
The dump bed model can also be equipped with a salt sprayer (for all you Seasons 19 fans.) If you want a plow that fits the plow mount fender option, you can get the Expandables Modding Heavy Duty Plow from this page.
There are so many things to customize on 5nine’s truck that the Giants game engine sometimes has problems coping. Here are some of the things you can control:
Design options – There are 4 different exhaust pipe alternatives, 9 different bumpers, and 7 fender options. You can add steps, extra fuel tanks, and toolboxes to the side of the truck. Air horns, a sun visor, and a tag axle can be added or removed.
Colors – There are so many color options. Not only for the body and the rims, but also for the dump bed cover, the dump bed itself, the chrome parts, and the front fenders.
5nine’s Ford truck is almost as customizable as the trucks in American Truck Simulator and European Truck Simulator 2.
FS19 Ford LTL 9000
This mod leaves me speechless. It’s jaw-droppingly good. It’s stunning! And it’s one of the most versatile trucks in the history of Farming Simulator games. The amount of work that has gone into making it is insane. Here are some quick facts:
- Brand: Ford.
- Credits: 5nine (the main guy), Expendables Modding, NastyModz (audio), alfalfa6945 (the Easy Autoload script), Ifko[nator] (addConfig script), and finally, Realismus Modding (plow and salt script.).
- Category: Trucks.
- Base price: 124,000.
- Engine configurations: 3 – Cummins NH230, Cummins NTC350, and Caterpillar 3406.
- Power range: 230, 350, and 375 horsepower.
- Top speed: 74 miles per hour | 120 kilometers per hour.
- Dump bed capacity: 40,000 liters.
- Flatbed capacity: 16 pallets, 15 square bales, 18 round bales, 1 cotton module, 3 John Deere cotton bales, and tons of egg boxes.
- Selectable colors: Oh yes!
- Selectable wheels: Yes.
- Wheel brands: Lizard, Nokian, Michelin, and Trelleborg.

The mod did not produce any errors, just a small warning in the log.
Warning (physics): Non-cpu collision mesh for 'colPart01' is being cooked at runtime - this will not work on consoles.
Since it’s a PC mod, it’s safe to ignore the warning.
Version 1.1 – Chains and Fixes
(Updated September 14, 2019) It didn’t take long for one of the most feature-rich FS19 mods to get even more features. 5nine has added more wheel options, including crawlers and chains, to the Ford. Toggle the Mitas and Lizard brand options to add the chains and crawlers.
You can also add an extra trailer hitch to the rear of the truck with the updated version, which also includes vertical unloading of round bales.
There have been some fixes too: The windows are not “foggy” anymore, while the Autoload positions have been adjusted.
