Howdy all. Newbie member here, and this is my 1st post. My better half and I just traded for a 2006 Silverado 1500 (our 1st Chevy truck) yesterday, and I have a question(s). Is there an online guide for deciphering the VIN?? I need to figure out a couple of options, and the option level. I know that it is an LT, but not which level of LT (1, 2, or 3). Also, which 5.3 engine (I do know it's not the multifuel version), and which rear axle ratio that I have (I do have the towing package). Any suggestions? Thanks in advance :cool:

Edited to add: Forgot to add that I'm also the original owner of a 69 Camaro - 95% original, except that I've had it painted (lacquer as original) in 98-99. Plain jane, 327, powerslide, a/c, ps. Trophy in every show I've put it in. App. 85,000 original miles. Lemans Blue. When I learn how to post a pic, I'll post one of the car & truck.

Hi welcome to the site,:great:

The easiest way to find your options is locate the RPO sticker it's full of codes that tell you what options, engine, rear end and so on.
You can download an alphabetized PDF of GM's RPO codes here http://aly-kotah.com/RPO.pdf

Thanks Peter, I appreciate the info. Bad news is - I have no RPO code, as I bought a used one :-{ I will, however, download the pdf. anyway.

You might try vinquery.com

Below is the "Extended" info I got for $1.90. I didn't get specific info about the engine/trans/rear end for my inquiry. Your results may vary.

I think you confused me there. The RPO codes would be in the glove box of the truck on a sticker like this.

Thanks a million, Patrick. Only had it 1 day, and didn't have a clue that the RPO codes were in the glovebox. I'll get on it 1st thing tomorrow :-} Later.

Very cool find unplugged! a lot of "no data" in there. But most of the no data info isn't really relevant anyway.
