    This is probably a stupid question, but can someone explain to me what NBS, OBS, etc refers to?

    Not up on Chevy lingo.....

    nbs= new body style, obs= old body style, I believe.

    No stupid questions here at all. Actually, I wish more folks would ask 'stupid' questions!

    The answer you got was correct.

    It refers to the 07 models as they still sold some 07 as the outgoing model or (classic) and some the current body style

    As noted OBS=Old Body Style -- this convention seemed to start around 2000, as OBS usually refers to '90's era trucks ('88-'98 pickups, '89-'99 suburbans, and so on)

    NBS=New Body Style -- usually referring to the early 2000's body style

    NNBS=New New Body Style -- not sure of the years, but after NBS and before the most recent redesign/restyle

    OOBS = Old old body sytle -- pre '88'ish

    IMO, it's not a very useful way to designate "generations", but it is very common among GM truck enthusiasts.

    I also use it to refer to myself when I look in the mirror. "Wow.. I can't believe I've actually got an OBS now."
