Question Hood River Edition availability in the Midwest?


I've been looking at various R-POD models, and thru my research I came across the Hood River Edition. Sounds like something I'd be interested in, but it says "West Coast Production Only." I live in Michigan. What are the changes of getting a Hood River Edition in Michigan? Is it worth getting? What would it cost to get these items added to a regular R-POD?

Diamond Plate Rock Protection
on Wheel Wells and Front Wall
Axle Riser for Elevated Ground Clearance
X-Treme 15″ Tires
Aluminum Rims

Most of the HRE features are on standard Pods now, barring the diamond plate in the wheel wells and the bigger tires.

Risers are placed on most all new Pods these days, if not you can easily order it that way.

The bigger tires are mostly for show. I don't care what you put on an Rpod it is not an off road type of vehicle. Not so much in that slightly bigger tires will change what you can pull it through.

Diamond plate is on the front of a lot of the Pods now and again if not you could add or request it on the build sheet, but even east coast Pods are getting it now.

HRE's are pretty much normal PODS, just a bit of added flash to them.
