Really suprised about this,

There are 2 2001 SIE 2500 EXT CAB LONG BOX vehicles (0.008%) matching your exact options list. There are 2 (0.008%) with at least as many options.

If you haven't checked out your truck (by VIN), this site gives you some interesting perspective on your truck, and how many were built like it.

Looks like the site has not been updated since early in 2010. I just have to assume mine is a one of a kind. :)

Thnks for posting the VIN check website John. I searched my 2003 Silverado a few months ago, and then lost the web address. I was trying to find it again, and low and behold!! Here's the results for my 2003 reg cab long bed.
There are 3 2003 SIL 1500 REG CAB LONG BOX vehicles (0.002%) matching your exact options list. There are 3 (0.002%) with at least as many options.

Mine is so rare that it doesn't even register in the database lookup. Guess they are not updating this site any longer. :(

Nothing found for VIN Number
It may be that we don't have it in the database yet, but be sure to check that you
have typed it correctly. Be sure to try back often, we're constantly updating the database
No 2011's yet
I WOULD RATHER HAVE IT AND NOT NEED IT.. THEN NEED IT AND NOT HAVE IT !

That must be the issue! Thanks. Can you let us know when the 2011s are going in?

Somewhere on their website, it mention's that it was not updated since early in 2010. Last time I checked, mine was not in there, either.

EKinMN wrote:Here's a quick break down of what the code means. Example:

Year 1989

Name Paint Code
Dark Blue Metallic 28/WA8264

The Break Down:

The first part of the paint code is a refrence to an RPO code Like 28U or 28L. The U stands for upper color and L stands for Lower color. This is if you have a two tone paint job. The WA8264 is the refrence number to the color. It will be show Like L8264 or U8264.

You can find this code on the bottom of the Service Part Identification Sticker located in side your glove box. Names of paint may change, but the paint codes remain the same. Example, Olympic white and Summit white are the same color.



This is all real helpful but what would represent the INTERIOR color?
