What exactly is Z71 package?

What exactly is Z71 package?

Postby trout_champ [OP] » Oct 28 2011, 6:58am

Not sure if this goes here but, what exactly comes with a Z71 package? I was checking my RPO codes on my new truck and did not see the Z71 code, but the truck has Z71 stickers on it. Am I gonna get screwed by the dealership?

Thanks

Basicly it is a little different suspension package and some extra skid plates. It should have the Z-71 designation on the RPO sticker if it has it.

Z71 "OFF ROAD" CHASSIS PACKAGE 'OFF ROAD' CHAS PKG(Z71)

You mean you don't see Z71 as one of the codes on the sticker in the glove box? Well, I guess it's entirely possible the stickers are aftermarket?

Directly from the chevrolet website :
The available Z71 Off-Road Package includes:

•Z71 Off-Road suspension
•46mm twin-tube high-pressure gas-charged shocks
•Skid Plate Package with a frame-mounted shield
•GM segment-exclusive automatic locking rear differential that provides added grip when you need it
•Available Z71 Appearance Package: 18" aluminum wheels, body-color mirrors and door handles, body-color grille with chrome insert, and Rancho® shocks

One of my buds almost bought a bogus Z71 optioned truck last year. He came by to see what I thought of a 2007 truck he was going to buy from a used car dealer. As we were talking, the subject of the G80 locking differential came up and I was going to show him the code to look for but it was not there, then I noticed the Z71 option code was not there either but the skip plate option was NZZ. He backed out of buying the truck and told the used car dealer why but he said nothing. Looking at the decals on the truck it seemed like they were brand new and showed no signs of being 5 yrs old.
