    Default NBS, NNBS whats what?

    What body style is what. So many parts catalouges refer to body style and I would like to know exactly which style I have. It is a 2000 Yukon. I have been told it is the same as the Tahoe but the 2000 chevys look different. Does anyone have pictures of the different body styles and to what they are refered to as? Thanks for any help.

    NBS.....NNBS on the SUV's for the Years and Models/Platform

    A 2007" and Up NNBS/GMT-900 Tahoe,


    A 2000" To 2006" NBS/GMT-800 Tahoe,

    A 1992" To 1999" OBS/GMT-400 Tahoe,







    A 2007" and Up NNBS/GMT-900 Yukon,


    A 2000" To 2006" NBS/GMT-800 Yukon,


    A 1992" To 1999" OBS/GMT-400 Yukon,




    Without being able to see a picture of your Ride.....I would say from what You've mentioned your 2000" Yukon would be a NBS/GMT-800/Platform

    Thanks to 99'HEARTBEAT for the research and time for the posts! Cleared up a lot of my confusion.
    Maybe should consider making this a sticky.
