Went out for a drive and........

brought this home!!!



We had been talking about getting a more powerful TV and we just happened to be in Blanchard, Oklahoma so we stopped by the 13th rated truck sales car lot in the United States (Knippelmeir Chevrolet). There sales staff has got to be the best there is!

I have never had a Truck or Car sales ever go as smooth as this one did. There staff is #1 in my book and I hate car shopping!!!!

If anyone is looking for a new or used truck and are ever in this area I highly recommend them.

Steve,

Look in the glove box there should be a GM Service Parts Identification sticker listing a whole bunch of GM RPO codes. The rear end size code normally starts with a "G" (three total digits), then refer to the following link and match your "G" code with one of the "G" codes on the list:

The only reason I know what my gear ratio is (3.73) is because it was on the sticker when I bought the truck new. It was only about a 100.00 option at the time over the 3.42............

Nice link Rustic. I'll be using that one.

I also called a local certified GM dealer and they looked it up with my VIN in a couple of seconds.

I have the limited slip as well. Those are both nice options to have.

Hey mom, guess what followed me home!
Can I keep it? Pleeeeeeze?

Nice! I'm more of a blue oval guy but I'd never turn my nose up at a good GM.
Now, get busy now winding up that odometer.
