    by 1871S do you mean 1871SFO?

    If so, the SFO is a shorter cab with less front overhang, and is the more manueverable of the two. In the SFO, you can look down out of the windshied and see the bumper ahead of you.

    I think that HME offers 2 basic four door custom cabs. The 1871 SF0 and the rest of the 1871 series.

    The 1871 P2, 1871 SLe, and other HME 4 doors are the same cab with different trim levels. kinda like a Pontiac Grand Prix and a Buick Regal sharing the same basic body with different trim levels, and possible engine options.

    Default HME Chassis Variations

    HME offers three basic families of custom chassis:

    The 1871-SLE has a unique cab front design with round lights, upscale grille, larger windshield, etc. It also features ducted heat, a different interior package, standard ES-Key multiplexing and the engine is moved slightly forward for more rear leg room.

    The 1871-Series is also a top-of-the-line model which features a more traditional front end treatment, but has a unique interior package and is available with your choice of a conventional electrical system or ES-Key, and a full range of options. There are other versions of the same basic cab known as 1871-P, 1871-P2 and 1871-P2e. The difference is interior and exterior trim levels, engine/transmission availability and option availability, but the cab shell is essentially the same.

    The 1871-SFO is indeed a "short front overhang" model. It was originally designed for the Chicago F.D., but is widely used for its ability to fit in tight areas, and is prefered by the California OES. There is a variant know as 18710SFO-MFD12 which is stretched 9" at the rear and has a 12" raised roof. Currently, the largest engine available is the Cummins ISL-350.

    Default Full Apparatus Line

    We are a Dealer for the full HME apparatus line - not just chassis. By the way, HME is one of nearly 40 companies under common, private ownership. The companies are in the fields of heavy duty trucks, metal fabrication, aircraft, energy exploration, etc. Check out the following for a sampling of the HME group companies:

    HME Incorporated
    www.hmeparts.com]HME Parts[/URL]
    Valley Truck Parts
    Nationwide Parts
    Van Dam Iron Works
    Metal Components LLC
    Basler Turbo
    HME VT100 Heavy Duty Truck

    And the list goes on and on...........

    P.S. If you want rectangular headlights, just wait a couple of months for the release of the 1871-S built on the SLe floorplan. That's all I can say for now.
