How to Add an Addon Vehicle Onto Your Server
Download the addon vehicle from the internet For example: GTA5 Mods has a variety of vehicles
Make a new folder in your PC and make another folder called stream inside of it.
Get OpenIV downloaded on your PC and start it
Enable edit mode on your OpenIV and drag the dlc.rpf file into OpenIV
Open the dlc.rpf file in OpenIV, go into the “x64” folder until you find the files that end in .yft and .ytd
Grab all of the files and drop them inside of the stream file you have created. Be aware that car extras would be in a different folder called “vehiclemods”
Go back to the dlc.rpf file and go into the “common” folder until you find the files that end in .meta
In the main folder, create a new file called “__resource.lua” and inside of it type the following (then save the file).

resource_manifest_version '77731fab-63ca-442c-a67b-abc70f28dfa5'
files {'vehicles.meta', 'carvariations.meta', 'carcols.meta', 'handling.meta', 'vehiclelayouts.meta',}
data_file 'HANDLING_FILE' 'handling.meta'
data_file 'VEHICLE_METADATA_FILE' 'vehicles.meta'
data_file 'CARCOLS_FILE' 'carcols.meta'
data_file 'VEHICLE_VARIATION_FILE' 'carvariations.meta'
data_file 'VEHICLE_LAYOUTS_FILE' 'vehiclelayouts.meta'

Upload the main folder into your server’s resources folder using an SFTP such as FileZilla.
Go into your server.cfg and type “start ” and then your main folder name. For example: “start car1”
Restart your server and you are done.
You can find the cars name in-game by looking at the name of the file ending with .yft
