2007 Chevy Silverado 2500HD LS 4x4 CCSB - Specs and tech Data
This information is unashamedly all
about my particular truck. Much of the information will also be applicable to
many other trucks, even if they aren't the exact same year, model, configuration,
or trim level as my truck. I can't, however, cover all the info and options
for all trucks, even just the 07's or just the 2500HD's. If you need more specific
information about a different truck, see the "references" section
at the end of this article.
My truck is officially known as:
2007 Chevrolet Silverado (Classic)
2500HD (K25743) LS Crew Cab Standard Box 4WD 1SK Package
That's quite a mouthful of a name!
It breaks down like this:
2007 Chevrolet Silverado - Year, make, and model (obvious!) (Classic) - Denotes the older body style of the two versions
of Silverado that were produced as 2007 models. 2500HD - Chevy's notation for Heavy Duty 3/4 ton pickup truck (K25743) - GM model number for Crew Cab Standard Bed 2500HD
4x4 LS - The trim level (LS is the mid-level, between Base and
LT) Crew Cab - Four full doors Standard Box - The box is 6'6" ( a short-box is 5'8"
and a long-box is 8' long) 4WD - Four Wheel Drive 1SK Package - sub-set of the trim level, denotes a standardized
set of options.
The line of trucks to which my truck
belongs is known as the GMT800 series. Covering 1999-2007 they are also more
commonly known as NBS, or "New Body Style", trucks. Of course, now
that the Silverado has been redesigned for 2007.5+ (the GMT900 series trucks)
it becomes less convenient to refer to the 99-07 trucks as NBS, unless we want
to call the 2007.5+ trucks NNBS!

The most useful information I made
into a little graphic card I printed, laminated, and keep in the glove box.
It beats digging through the 600-page owners manual for information.

decal that gives camper loading information, for use with slide-in campers.
GM uses a 3-digit
code, called an RPO (an acronym for Regular Production Option), to identify
the options with which a specific vehicle is built. They are listed on a label
or sticker called the Service
Parts Identification (SPID) label. On late-model GM trucks this label is found
inside the glove box. Some of the most famous RPO's are Z28 (performance package
found on Camaro's) and LS1 (specific type of V8 engine).
By recording your RPO's and looking
them up in a reference table you can identify the options with which your vehicle
The Service Parts
Identification (SPID) label found in my truck. This label includes other
information along with the list of RPO's, including the V.I.N., wheelbase,
paint codes, and vehicle model number.
