I think the only exception could be what they're building for FDNY, which I assume are stainless. I think the Ember and Intruder are the HME's with Ferrara badges (and grilles in the case of the Ember).
Going to be in Indy Rob?
The Ultra cab is also made by TCM. Ferrara does not make any of their cabs.
Since we are on who makes cabs. Let’s see with a list of who makes their own or has them subbed out. If it is different then what I have post it and Ill update this list.

I was also under the impression that E-One built all of their own cabs, until I saw this photo, which looks suspiciously like an E-One Typhoon to me.
As far as I know, all of Sutphen's cabs are TCM.
While at the E-One factory, I saw them building their own cabs for the 3 lines mentioned above. I have pictures too....but won't post them as I don't want to show super secrets....:D ;)
TOWER412: I was told at Rosenbauer's recent event at the Texas Motor Speedway that Marion did build the cab shell for their new Commander cab.
All of Sutphen's cabs are made at their Hilliard facility. It has been several years since TCM made them.

When E-One goofed by discontinuing all of their cab styles in 1996 when they revamped to the Cyclone II, this left them without an entry level/mid-range custom. The "American Eagle" custom quickly appeared and hung around until 2000. Aesthetically, it was the same cab shell as the previous Cyclone/Protector TC. I never did confirm, but I believe that E-One had already pulled that design from their line, so they had TCM build it for them, just to get a cheap custom back out there.
TCM did build the original Sutphen Shield design, but it now has the same cab shell as the high end Monarch, which are both built in-house.
my rig was in service for a solid 15 hours before we lost the brakes, a whole two and a half days before the brake line (that they ran over the top of the telma retarder) MELTED Away... Turning on the AC activates the warning lights... Thats the SHORT list... going to be a long haul...
I'll try to find you. I assume you'll be working the booth for whom you're now selling for?
Yes sir. Look forward to seeing you again.
Funny part is, the dumbass that delivered it, saw the alternator light on, and thought nothing of it a couple hours before he got here.
Any word yet on who got the award to build 90 engines for the F.D.N.Y., I have seen news that Ferrara, will build (13) more 100ft aerials at a cost of 13 million dollars. It looks like Seagrave needs to get there truck pricing in line with all the other builders. If the new Ferrara chassis aerials fall a part in the next few years it maybe the last contract for them from FDNY ?
