Uncle Looking to buy a Z71!
Hello, all! Just wanted everyone's opinion. Okay, my Uncle bought an Impala SS spec'd 96 Caprice like 1 yr ago, and now he wants a 96up Z71 ext. cab! I just wondered what everyone thought about it? He wants a Z71 for the leather and the tow pkg.(both you can get with the 4x4, right?) I told him that a Z71 ext cab is like $3000 higher than a 4x4 reg. cab. And the Z71 pkg is just a sticker, some skidplates and Bilsteins. ALso, what year did the 3rd door become an option, 98? They said his car is worth like $12,000 on trade and he could get like $2500-$3000 to put with it. Ive seen LOTS of 94 and 95s for $13-$15,000 because they have the TBI engines. The Vortech 350 is what he wants though!
Any input is appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Uncle Looking to buy a Z71!
I got a 2001 Z71 Ext. cab about 7 months ago. Not sure when the 3rd door became available, but I think the 4th door is standard in the 2000 models. The Z71 package includes a bigger air cleaner (may add a coupla horses), bigger shocks (which increases payload & towing capacity a little), skid plates, and the stickers of course. In the new models, Z71 also includes that fancy pro-tec composite bed & tailgate. The 5.3L Vortec is standard with LT trim level and optional with the LS or standard trims. The tow package is separate (option Z83, I think). 4.11 gears and locking rear are good options to look for too.
