I'd put my sound deadning and shocks up against almost anyone!!
I just think the grill on the Silverado's don't look as "strong" as the Sierra's.

By QC I am guessing you mean "quality checks"??
I have been a quality tech in the past at a GM plant, and trust me the parts are the same on both trucks lol!! Other than cosmetics, right now I am making 2KXX A pillars, this is for the new 2014 body style trucks, one part goes to two different locations GMC>>>CHEVY Potato<<<<Potatoe
BIQ is the new ISO standard of quality, It stands for "Built in quality". They eliminated my quality job, and now they find and fix defects on the line. I can tell you we get a lot more rejected material from the GMC locations, as they are very picky.2004 Chevy Colorado

I personally think the GMC grill is a tad better looking than the Silverado, I just don't like the fenders at all on the Sierra NNBS. The accents that go around the rear wheel wells on a Sierra especially are positively hideous, the Silverado fenders look so much nicer. I also prefer the tail lights of the Silverado with the reverse light in the middle.
Once again this is just my opinion.

I've noticed a trend of liking different year front ends of either truck. For example, I absolutely LOVED the front end of my 2006 Silverado, but was not a fan of the GMC front end of that same year. Once Chevy went to the new body style in '07, I preferred the GMC front end. Now, I really like the front ends of the Chevy 2500's over the GMC's. Overall, I love both trucks. It just depends on the year for which one I like more.
So far as which brand is better than the other? Well I think that's a matter of opinion. Both sides have "data" supporting why theirs is "better" than the other. The biggest difference I've personally noticed is the difference in the standard features at each equipment level (LT, SLE, SLT, LTZ, etc...). GMC seems to have a lot more standard per level than Chevy. Well, at least from what I've noticed on the websites! ANYways, that's just my 5 cents! Both trucks do look awesome though. They are both well maintained, which says a lot about the owners. Good job folks, and sweet rides!
