Other than the obvious decal on the side of the truck, where do the GM 4x4's and Z71's differ ?
Right off of the Chevy Website:
Suspension Package, Off-Road, includes 1.81" (46 mm) shocks, off-road jounce bumpers, stabilizer bars, (B71) Wheel flares, (NZZ) Skid Plate Package, and Z71 decals on rear quarters (Z71)
(NZZ): Skid Plate Package, includes aluminum front underbody shield starting behind front bumper and running to 1st cross-member, protecting front underbody, oil pan, differential case and transfer case, frame-mounted shields (NZZ)
Should answer your questions.

can i put z71 shocks on my regular 4x4??? are the skid plates worth puting on...
Yes, you can mount the factory z71 shocks on your non-z71 as long as its in the same group (i.e. GMT-800 or GMT-900).
But.....unless you are getting some pull off shocks from another z71 on the cheap, you would be better off buying some aftermarket shocks. For example: Bilstein, Rancho, Pro comp, etc.....
I prefer Bilstein 5100 series personally.

If it were not for the Z71 decal on the side of the box, GM would probably sell very few of the Z71 option. Whom ever thought up that idea (Z71 decal) back in 1988 should be running GM today as it probably sold more trucks than anything GM ever did. Did to trucks what John Delorean did to Ponitac in 1964 with the GTO.

GMT has nothing to do with drive system, it's the platform. GMT 900 is current and GMT 800 is the previous body style. GMT 400 was the 88-98 trucks.
