    guys,
    in my nightly search for a newer truck, i just ran across an ad for a 2011 silverado 2wd, but it has the z71 stickers on each side of the back bed....
    i always thought z71 was for 4x4 trucks... is it possible to have a z71 with 2wd ?
    just curious... thanks..

    Besides the Z71 OffRoad Suspension Package, They"GM"have the Z71 Appearance Package for 2WD, below are the Features it comes with,

    The Z71[SUP]®[/SUP] Appearance Package, available on Extended Cab Standard Box and Crew Cab™ Short Box models, includes body-color front bumper lower and center sections with body-color end caps, a body-color grille with chrome insert, unique Z71 decals, bright door sill plates, chrome recovery hooks, body-color outside mirrors and door handles and fog lamps. 18" aluminum wheels and 18" tires and front and rear Rancho[SUP]®[/SUP] shocks raise the Z71 performance level even higher.

    thanks for the info..... strange... the truck im looking at doesnt have body colored bumper, (only the end caps), dont have body colored grill, dont have chrome recovery hooks, body colored door handles or mirrors, .......
    gotta look into this.... maybe someone just bought the stickers.... its at a very well known local chevrolet dealership.... false advertising ?

    That could be....."someone just bought the stickers"......a couple of ways to find out, check the RPO Codes In-Side the Glove Box, and see if there is, RPO code Z71, and/or run the Trucks Vin# Number.....

    Your Welcome, are you going to go take a look at this Silverado??......if you do, I would be interested to know, what and/or who put the Z71 sticker on the Truck.

    I have seen a Z66 in a 2wd but never a Z71

    My cousin has a Colorado that is 2wd, with the Z71 package. Maybe the truck was wrecked, and someone got a bed off of a Z71 at the junkyard? Ha ha, that was a stretch!
