Build codes-factory options

hey Joe, I know you can help on this one.....96 Chevy Silverado Ext. Cab Z71, 5.7, 3.73 posi....just bought this truck a month ago, beautiful rig, everything works great.....

here's what I can't find.....glove box sticker (build sticker) has 65 seperate option numbers, no descriptions, there ain't enough room on the poor little tag....

been searching for hours for a GM site or anyone else that can identify the numbers....I stumbled around and figured out the engine, rear end, posi, and a couple other items, but just out of curiosity would like to check them all....can you point me in the right direction short of a two hour phone call to a dealer, remember, sixty five separate #'s here......

thanks

I took my veh. to a dealer and the shop tech gave me the info out of a manual. I had a web for GM where you could submit the VIN and it would give you all that info. BUT it failed to recognize me as I did not have a current dealer password. Hope Joe can come up with an idea or a web site.

thanks Darrell.....

came up with this site

http://www.gm-trucks.com/RPO_1998.shtml

from a guy on chevytalk.com....only goes back to 98 but I got all of mine except 6, that's pretty good considering how many there are....I have all kinds of things that can go bad......

Give me your VIN and a fax # and I'll run it through the GM parts Imager I have at work. It is the same database as a dealer has. By the way, any GM dealer can do the same thing. GM data goes from about 1991 or so forward.

It will decode all the options. Some do not have explanations (the printout indicates this) and are factory internal codes with no field significance.

Hope that helps.

Good luck with the truck. Sounds nice.

yes it is a very nice truck, everything works, runs and drives perfect so far, I've only owned it for a month or so.....I actually bought it on eBay, sight unseen, just looked at pictures, truck came from Texas.....I was a little nervous waiting for it to get here, dreading what kind of shape it could be in.....needless to say, I'm amazed and impressed at the honesty of the seller concerning this truck.....
