OK, Ill start. I added mirrors, front and rear cameras, BOH diff pedal, single point hydraulic release, 3rd SCV, front lighting, rear lighting, moved everything inside the ROPs, ran dedicated expansion circuits front and rear, and put on the mother of all seats.

No implements allowed, that's another thread.

I named mine George and got it dirty being useful. I have plans for more later.
Receiver hitch, horn, custom rear monogram, vanity license plate and several home-made accessories.

See the "Accessories" link in my signature block... :cool:
Welcomed it to my home, took lots of pictures knowing no matter how hard I tried it would never be quite as clean as it was when new, and used it. It's "mine" now. Oh yeah and I added some hooks to the bucket and farted in the seat. :LOL:

I still think my fuel gauge light is purty cool 😎
Lol, fuel gauge light. While I appreciate the simplicity of the mechanical fuel gauge, I wonder why JD didn't give us an electric gauge on the instrument panel. There's even a place for it to the left of the tach. Should have saved the mechanical fuel gauge for the 1023E.

Add ad set of mirrors; but one did not survive a limb attract. The third function and a grapple has been the most useful. A set of forward and rear lights(this way I can ride; I mean work; at night.
The work its done... Otherwise it is just another tool.
Thank you Sir Clyde. You are a gentleman and a scholar.

Nice work Rod, really nice work.

Nothing that makes it special to me but adding Kenny's did lock pedal makes it feel complete. I went almost a year pushing that stupid rod down with my heel and now that there's a pedal there it doesn't feel weird.
D#&$%it Bob. I love my Milsco V5300 but that Grammer of yours gives me seat envy.

Actually my only regret was waiting over 10 years to do it

I am looking at your unconventional 3 point sway hook-up. Does that prevent the lift arms from swaying? If not, your rear implements are going to rub groves in your tires from swaying against them.
You know it's funny, but I have never used the Diff Lock pedal and the Mauser cab equipped tractors has a Custom one.....Here it is compared to the KBOH pedal, so Kenny could see the difference. I never installed the KBOH pedal. I need to find it and send it to someone who would put it to good use.

I also noticed that Doug uses the Hydro Fluid Dye, John Deere part number MT3668 and it sure makes it easy to see in the sight glass on the rear housing.....Here is a screen shot of his photo of the rear 3pt area, zoomed in to see the sight glass level..............It's also much easier to see leaks when you are working in the snow, verses the water drips from the tractor's front QA Hitch with the angling cylinder, which the exhaust heat causes the snow to melt and drops to fall off the machine.

I won’t say but it’s a fuel system mod on mine that makes it special to me
