Hey, thanks for the reply. Yes, I am feeding another panel, inside the house. Attaching pic of the panel..
So in this pic, 1 and 2 are hot, 3 neutral and 4 ground. 1, 2, and 3 are 4-0 aluminum, and the ground is 2-0 aluminum.
If there is a better meter-main panel combo than these, please let me know.
Also, I have new pex piping being run in the house, so no metal to ground to.. I hope the panel inside the house does not need a ground rod, because that would be a pretty long run, probably 30-35 ft from the panel.

Orange are the feed thru lugs that you might need or you might not need?
Do you have another panel that you need to feed inside the house? If the answer is yes, the orange lugs are to feed the other panel.
This meter main looks like what they use for house trailers. They mount this panel outside on a pole and feed the trailer panel from the orange circled lugs.
I would look at other meter mains, unless you are going to use this panel to feed another panel. You are very limited with breaker capacity in this panel. This panel is designed for very few branch circuits. It is designed to feed another panel.
