First, the Gator: John Deere added a slew of items that improve the machine’s functionality and appearance. Most noticeable is the Desert Sand bodywork. It features military-inspired graphics and definitely looks the part. Additional improvements over a standard Gator XUV835M are black wheels with Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires, a black roof, and a brush guard. All Honor Editions get black vinyl 40/60 split-bench seats, a sport steering wheel, and a power-lift cargo box that includes a spray-in bed liner, brake lights, and taillights. Further, open-station models get half doors, and models with HVAC get a Stone headliner.
