    This is from a guy on PA that just bought an 2003 1500 chevy Z71 LT extcab in Dark green. It looks pretty good, but yet the front will take some getting used too. The pics are protected so I couldnt right click them. Just click THIS LINK to see the pics, there is even a couple of pics with a side-by-side of his 2003 and his dads 2002 Z71. It looks like the 2003 is about 2" taller front and rear.

    Not realy that bad. No as bad as the pictures in mags. Is it just cosmetic changes?

    I saw that over there and I still don't know about that frontend. I also noticed that the front looked like it was taller and the rear deffinatly sat up higher.

    looks similar to the avalanches front end. i definately like 99-02 front end better, but it will grow on me.

    Thats a VERY ugly truck, Im sorry but it is! and the steering wheel is ugly too! As for it being higher then the other Z71 I doubt it, Pressure(tire) could be different, the 03 is brand new, so the suspention has not sagged at all. I know if I put my back end of my 02 z71 to my dads 00 z71 I am higher, so figure that one out :) My truck is the black one.

    Okay this is what I found, My springs say "15765 128" They are harder to push down on, and my truck sits higher.
    My dads say "15746 328" the are way more easy to push down on and more bouncy, and his truck sits lower, both are Z71's. So whats the deal?

    I don't like the new front end at all with the current wheel tire combo. Add some lift or drop with some kewl wheels and it will look WAAAYY SMOOTH...Like it should. Anyone notice that the Z-71 that is lower also has a hitch??? Add the weight of that and the fact that the springs are still new and it will prolly be the same height.

    Also,
    Anyone notice in the pic of the engine a tube running from the back of the intake to the drivers side connects to SOMETHING. What????

    I agree with most others here. They added alot of nice creature comforts insdie the the front end will take some time to grow on me but I'm sure once I see one lifted I'll like it! As for the '03 being taller...couple things. First the '02 has a toolbox in the rear and secondly the springs and torsion bars have had time to settle. I don't think there will be any height difference. I also think the new front end gives an optical illusion that the '03 is taller.

    Still not a huge fan of the front end, but I will get used to it. As soon as one is lifted, I probably will like it alot.

    I think if I saw one lifted it would look good, just like an avy lifted looks waay better.
    Notice the color matched mirrors?
    Also notice its missing the body side molding from the bed

    It will take some getting used to for sure, but damn I like those tail lights at least they got one thing right ;)

    I'm not a fan of the 03 either, but I did notice the speedo went to 120. Guess the 03 is "faster" than the 99-02's huh? So far my 01 has been perfect so I am in no big hurry to get rid of it. Hoping that since GM is getting new products to market faster, by the time I'm ready for another, I will like the bodystyle. Maybe a Duramax/Allison next time. Had a deal made on a Duramax, but backed out and got the 1/2 ton instead.

    WTF are yall ? Click the link, and you will see that both have a hitch. That said, if the new body style is a bit taller, I still dont like it so far. My opinion may change once I see one lifted, but still..... I do like the new steering wheel, and the Bose stereo. My little bro just got a 2002 Camaro SS, and he has the Bose Monsoon system, and it is alot better than our Delco crap. Like John, I do like the new taillights. Anyway, I'll withhold my final judgement until after I see a lifted version. But even then, I'll like the '99-'02 frontend better. Hopefully Ranchhand if hard at work on something to cover up that '03 thing. :kidding:

    Question Split opinion

    I really like the front end because I think it just has more attitude.(considering my favorite new car is the WS6 Trans Am, That explains the attitude) I just don't think that the front end goes with the rest of the truck. It just doesn't blend in well with the cab. I will say that it looks alot better without all the plastic crap the Avalanche has. I think Chevy is on the right track, they just are on the wrong lane!

    Also notice in the pics of the back of the truck, GM put a new style whale tail on the top of the tailgate.
