    Default Does anyone know if build plates are used anymore.

    I have a 2012 Silverado and the window sticker did not have any options codes listed. I cannot find any plate or sticker, such as, so I know what the engine is other than 5.3L iron block (LM?) and other options from the factory.

    Check the inside of your glove box and you should see a sticker. At least that's where it's located in my truck.

    Heh, I read the title of this and was like 'what's a build plate?' I had no idea that was a term applied to the RPO code listing in the glovvie.

    Thanks, I did not know that they are called RPO but at one time they were a metal plate riveted on the firewall. The car would be build on the codes listed so I assume it was called a build plate for lack of a better term. Most options were coded and sometimes there would be a plate near the radiator mount (70's).
