Heres what it doesn't include!
20HP
lower gears
more ground clearance
heavier tranny

Oh, I don't know about the 20 HP thing. I mean... A little piece of the "1" from the "Z71" sticker was coming off, and I ***swear*** that I lost about 5 HP immediately! [img]images/graemlins/thud.gif[/img]

Kidding.

I kinda had the opposite effect. My salesman only really knew how to play with the radio. Forget about the 14-bolt rear on this sucker! Listen to the tunes!!!

About the Monroe's. I am "pretty sure" that my Dad's 2002 Z71 came with Bilsteins. Now whether they were added on at the dealer or shipped that way I've no clue, but I think the option is still there.

Re: Whats the Difference?

Haha yeah just about every truck I looked at they always talked about the radio.... The last of my concern. I was always looking underneath and smelling fluids... they probably wasn't expecting a 'kid' to be doing that.

Re: Whats the Difference?

"Ok, used car salesman, you listen to the pretty sounds on the radio while I try to figure out if this is a lemon or not, ok?" I just ask them- What is the lowest price this car will sell for, if it's not low enough, I leave. Let them call you back a day later and change their mind. HA!

P.S.- I'm not bashing on car salesmen, I have a few friends/relatives who had/have that position. But sometimes they know so little I just have to laugh about it instead of getting frustrated.

Re: Whats the Difference?

Yeah, it's a b*tch of a job, but it does make some money for people.

My only gripe is... know what the heck you are talking about. Better yet, LISTEN to what I'm saying and try to help me at that angle.

Remember ("back in the day") when a car's biggest improvement was the addition of another set of cupholders!? [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Whats the Difference?

I also don't think there is much difference in a FX4...
I don't like car salesman because, They're too pushy, 99.9% lie, 99.8% of the time dont know jack, and they're TOO PUSHY...

Re: Whats the Difference?

What's worse is that the new Silverados don't necessarily have the the G80 locking diff either. The h.d. towing equipment is also optional on the Z71. You better read your options list CAREFULLY if you really want to wheel it. Or be prepared to beef up alot o' stuff. Like Jason's badazz truck. SAS - Someday!
Factory equipment is just... [img]images/graemlins/lame.jpg[/img]
