Kenworth-T800-1 Kenworth-T800-2 Kenworth-T800-3

Warning! Mod works only on 1.3.x version of ATS. It will crash on 1.2.x or lower.
If you’re using previous version, you need to sell your T800 before updating.

Images for preview only, do not resemble ingame model, which has been updated multiple times now.

This is still an early beta stage of this mod. It may contain bugs and errors.

Yeah, yeah I know – this is yet another Kenworth T800 mod. This one is meant to be the 2015/2016 model which in real life reuses parts from W900 and exactly the same is done here.
This mod reuses as many parts from the SCS Kenworth W900 as possible, this way you get an SCS quality (hopefully) Kenworth T800.

-Truck is built in a similar to official SCS DLC manner

    is there its own interior ?

    • Justadude

      Yes, and no. It almos entirely uses the W900’s interior made by SCS, but that’s authentic, since the two trucks’ interiors are practically identical IRL. The only difference you can notice is the different dashboard computer, which is absolutely authentic on this truck. The SCS W900 uses the same unrealistic white on black design as the T680 and 579, while this truck has the authentic green on green version.


    This is a wonderful mod, does not effect frame rate at all, lots of tuning accessories, beautiful looking truck, and only 15mb download, great work GT-Mike, thanks a million. Help SCS put a beacon accessory for their trucks GT-Mike, LOL.

    Beautiful mod and I cant wait to see more done to it! I couldn’t exactly tell from your future update list but will you be making the necessary parts and chassis to create the T800’s that are used in the oilfields like this one:
    (note special things are the extremely heavy and modified front bumper with winch point, custom headache rack with heavy winch, raised chassis with roller rear bumper for lifting front load trailers with the winch etc…)

    Hi i can’t seem to get this to work in my game, I do have the 1.3 beta version and the mod at the highest priority.
    1. I drop it into the mod folder
    2. I activate it
    3. I load it threw “View All Trucks”
    4. The entire front end is missing and the game crashes shortly after.
    Help! I absolutely love this truck.

    • Justadude

      The missing front end is not a bug, it’s intentional (took me a while to figure it out too). You need to choose a hood type when customizing the truck at the dealer. The front is missing until you choose one of them. The crash is another story though, it might be due to some conflict with another mod.

  11. Doghouse

  12. kenworth

  13. Kw_Diego

    Great mod I like it so much, but would be possible to add a beacon light to the truck as the previous T800 model by dmitry68, Stels, oq37. Please

    Also I’d like to know if it’s possible to add this kind of windbreakers back to the cabin and the exhausts to the daycab model like the pic below

    And just another thing, if can be added an acrylic bug shield like this to the model

    Thanks for any help

  14. Kw_Diego

    Oh excuse me I got condused with the previous post so I had the previous version of this model without beacon lights, now it is great, thank you so much.

    But I still want to know if it’s possible to add this kind of aero kit (without the superior windbreaker) behind the exhaust and the cabin like the pic

    And just if can be added an acrylic (black) bug shield like this to the model
    Thanks again.

  15. GallegoBlack

    i don’t find the Mod in the Mod Gestor… and i have the 1.3.1 version

  16. RomanianTrucker07

  17. Mike B

    Needs a default hood for quick jobs, actually needs a default hood period make changing hoods an option, otherwise great MOD I love it.

  18. Alex
