In 1992, John Deere and Company released the very first Gator: the Gator TH, which was based off the 1987 John Deere All Materials Transport (AMT). The release of this new family of small all-terrain utility vehicles marked a significant turning point for the company and paved the way for the Gator models we use today.

John Deere All Materials Transport (AMT) would be available, they had three models the 600 622 and 626 (see picture below)

Other ones you might want to consider are

Yamaha Blaster
Honda ATC
Honda Big Red

Another option is the Kawasaki Mule which was introduced in 1988, which is similar to the Gator

The 2-wheelers were nicely showcased in a James Bond movie
But I like The Honda Fourtrax from 1986

Just so folks know my thought is that there will be a number of these in the Sally Port garages and in the tunnels at Prime Base. They will be totally ruined by the time any players get to them, but I wanted to have the rusted out debris be the correct make and models!

These are handy though, CCT and Aerial Port used them. Any area with narrow trails might have them in inventory.
