Google and Youtube are your friend.  You will find many tutorials on how to use sketchup.  There is no one way to make mods.  The only thing I can tell you is start basic and small with things such as buildings, then work your way up.  It is going to take many failed attempts to learn all the ins and outs of the program.

Good luck.

Sketchup may have the easiest learning curve, however, it is terrible for making models for a game when compared to programs made specifically for doing so.

If you have to learn how to use the program anyway, start with a more professional and game friendly program such as Blender, it's free.
The SDK provides an export plugin for it, so no conversion programs are needed to go in-game with your models.

Ya, AC3D is a good program to learn to but that will set you back 90$ or so.

Alot cheaper then 3ds max though. Another sim I play thats a flight sim all mods are 3ds max format, thats all it accepts. So atleast this game doesnt have to have that for mods

They will be a subgroup to the back tires and you may have to make them visible.
