This is my (Ross W.) edit of Sotillo’s John Deere 7800 for Farming Simulator 17. I got permission from Sotillo to do this, and I think it turned out pretty well. Here is a short list of what I’ve done:
Added American suitcase weights
Added American step
Added triangle on back and new American drawbar
Added dirt texture

Added new American 2wd wheels with selectable duals
Added new selectable frontloader bracket
Removed right door an a bunch of parts off of the tractor including the top 3-point arm to replicate my grandfather’s American 7800, which doesn’t even have a top arm
Added new sounds straight from my grandfather’s real American 7800
ccs101 had a hand in helping with a few problems that I came across along the way. So special thanks to him.
This mod has one existing error that we couldn’t figure out. It involves the frontloader brackets. It will only pop up when the brackets are purchased, but does not affect the mod in any way. It’s just there. We’ve tried everything to make it go away, but no luck. But no harm no foul. Enjoy the mod everyone!

    Nice good looking tractor. Finally a vintage tractor mod that isn’t miniature. Thanks. There are so many older tractors that I’d like to use such as that popular Ford TW pack, but they are much smaller then they should be when compared to the in game tractors.
