    I couldn't find info any where else about this, but my question is I just bought a 1997 Chevy 1/2ton Ext Cab 4x4 with the Z71 option code. I looked at all the option codes and I found that it has 3.73 gears but it doesn't have the G80 code any where in the option code list. Did the Z71 trucks come with a locker or limited slip in the rear as part of the package or since there is no G80 code do i just have an open rear end?

    Looks clean man. If there's no code, its not there. I have two with the Z71 code, one has the G80 code.
