There are very few differences.
Bigger "off road" 15" tires
Axle Risers Standard
Diamond plating both on the front and inside the wheel wells
And that is it. At times during production the HRE models may vary slightly from their equivalents from the East. But the above are the only differences.
Most Pods now, even non HREs oven have risers standard these days, the East ones have the Diamond plate on the front and you "could" get it in the wheel wells if you wanted.
They really are the same Pods.
