How can I tell what package is in this Silverado

    I have been given a 2005 Silverado 1500 and I'm trying to figure out what I have for gears, if it has a upgraded tow package or anything else that I can't see by the naked eye.

    I have the VIN and the decoder doesn't show any of this info. Is there any way I can figure this out?

    and if a picture helps.....this is it

    In the Glove box,there are code numbers that will tell you what you have,like what engine,what gears you have and so on.The picture of the truck it looks like the emblem on the cab said LT,but thats a Guess.Also do you have the Owners manual?

    Here are some Numbers to look for ,LM7=5.3 Liter, GT4= 3,73 Gears , G-80=Locker , Z82=Heavy-Duty Trailering Package.These would be some of the numbers that are in your Glove Box.
