I believe that was just one of the year-to-year changes that GM makes. I'm not sure what year they went from gold to red, but it doesn't mean anything other than that.

I think they changed the background color so the Z71 does not clash with the color of the truck...

Has to do with the body color.

Post a photo of it, I'd like to see the difference. I agree, probably has to do with body color becuase you will have a contrast issue if you just had one color sticker for all colors.

I believe 05 was the year they started making the Z red. In earlier models (I think 03 to 2000) they don't have Tahoe on them, just a gold Z71.
