    That White Sticker is the.....Service Parts I.D. Tag......as you can see it has the Vehicles Vin # Number and a Series of Letters and Number's and those are RPO Code's.....which stands for Regular Production Options......In short what the Truck Came with from the Factory.....from the what Engine to the Color of the interior, if you go to the below Link, you will be able De-Code those RPO Code's,.....example the RPO Code for a 4L60e Transmission is RPO Code....M30......and RPO Code 50U is the Color of the Vehicle, which is Summit/Olympic White and so on,

    Z85 is your suspension code, which in your case is stock ride height
    GT4 I believe is the rear end, but not 100% sure

    Basically it is the holy grail for your truck, the paint code is also on there as well.

    So the VERY dead battery I have (wont even run radio after you run truck for 30 min) and this transmission
    RPO Code MT1.....which is the (HYDRA-MATIC 4L80-E) TRANSMISSION, 4 SPD, AUTO W/ELECT CONTROLS H.D.
    would make you think that the problem from the battery is causing trans to run wierd, in driving it around the parking lot?

    Hi Mike, on my Suburban, the 2002 2500 4*4 with the 6 liter, would a top/side battery work, that way I could have the top terminals for jump starting etc, the battery is 8" high with the top terminals 3/4" taller than the side terminal alone.

    I got the truck for $2700 with 100k miles from the State Auction, just found out today. I want to go get the battery today, so was hoping you'd see this and let me know

    Smiling, its white I just heard today we got the truck for $2700 with 100k miles on it, it has some fender damage by the front door, like something pinched it there, more to do. I'd appreciate any other insight you might have for what to do to the truck. I want to get the seating fixed, think I will leave the black vinyl floor mats in, its really heavy, and probably good with teenagers etc... what do you think. The interior is blue, I want to toss the front seats out, as the drivers seat is cut up, but the passenger seat is good and middle row seat is also good, but there is no center console, and I'd like to match the middle and rear seat, as I've not seen any blue vinyl third seats out there used.

    So anything else you learned from my codes?
