    Well let's see. On the rear bed sides there are badges denoting the "Silverado" package. On the interior, the badge is above the glove box. Power windows and door locks. Don't know what else was part of the package, but that's a start. Mine also came w/ AC and the radio antenna in the windshield.

    Hmm, in that timeframe the Silverado package would get you the quad headlight setup, some extra chrome on the grille, fancier interior trim (upgraded door panels, carpet below the door panels, nicer trim on the dash, brushed aluminum bezel for the gauges), and cloth seats. I think there's more, but my brain hasn't received enough coffee yet this morning to know for sure. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    As far as I can tell from my window sticker the Silverado package consisted of cloth seats, full carpeting, headliner, brushed aluminum look guage bezel, mabey a bit of extra chrome, and the Silverado badges. '88 /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif Silverado

    Yep, the Silverado package can be thought of as an appearance and comfort package. It didn't have any effect on things like a/c, power windows, power locks, gear ratios, etc. All of those options still had to be selected (or not) individually.

    Here's mine with all the factory silverado trim and badges still intact. I am going to shave the emblems off and leave the chrome trim when I paint it black cherry. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    (and if your wondering, yes I have lifted my bumpers, no more goofy 3" gap)

    nice trucks /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    dont see many silverado around here, pretty uncommon now, especially 4x4 ones


    i should be able to read out every little thing that silverado Z84 put into a truck, because i have GM RPO descriptions and codes book copy, but it might be long, alot of bright metal trim stuff and door pull straps and deluxe horn cap and better carpet and more insulatikon and so on and so forth, probably full foam deluxe cloth seat too, etc etc etc all appearance junk and silverado badges and usually a hood ornament too and deluxe wheel covers and grille and full body side moldings set and tailgate bright panel cover and bright metal mirrors, bright dash pad piece and instrument panel bezel, etc etc.



    only thing that was ever better was YE9

    my bad GM went wierd after 72, in early 70s Z84 was cheyenne, then leater silverado,

    got complicated, i learned GM trucks with the CST era, Z84 CSt died in 72 and replace for a bit by cheyenne z84, same option, new name, this happened very often with GM,

    also 73-up custom deluxe was Z62 custom comfort and appearance of 67-72 era cept thjhat in 67 comfort and appearance were Z61 and Z62 but for 68 they combined into Z62 and Z61 was dropped, 67 Z61 was custom comfort and 67 Z62 was custom appearance
