  1. Actually, '73-'87's were the R/V series, the '88-'98 pickups were the C/K body style. The Blazer/Jimmy, Subs, and crew cabs were the R/V series as long as they looked like the '73-'87 pickups. Travis Your source being....? I was in the Oshawa Truck Plant from '85 to '88. During the changeover to the GMT400. We had never heard of the R/V designation until the carryover trucks were renamed. GMC has used the C/K designation to denote 4 x 2 & 4 x 4 trucks since the 40s. See: Click Click Also from Wikipedia: Maybe it's a regional thing, and maybe every technician that I've worked alongside has been wrong, but every GM dealership that I have worked at referred to the body styles as such. In fact, I've got a 1987 GMC truck drivability and emissions service manual (for the R/V models) sitting next to me right now that has in parentheses "Includes 1988 C/K Models". I'll agree that if you go by the 5th digit in the VIN from '81 and up, every fullsize regulare cab or extended cab pickup is C or K, but that's just how I've always been told and referred to them. Maybe I'm wrong, but I sure as heck don't put alot of faith in Wikipedia. Travis

  3. This IS a great thread! I just replaced both knock sensors on my truck that I bought just last week and this thread has given me plenty of help, especially the bulletin that was posted on pp.1(I think)...my sensors were every bit as nasty as the ones on Adam's (alwcurlz) posts. I have the luxury of being able to build my own harness, and I wasn't even expecting to, but I would recommend to everyone that lives North of the Mason-Dixon line to else buy a new harness or build a new one before attempting to do this job yourself.

  4. Just bought my '00 Silverado yesterday...195887 miles and 6142.6 hours. Travis
