    How do I know if my truck has a snow plow prep package on it.Also I have read alot about having a transmission cooler.It looks like my truck may have one already installed from the factory.I see the radiator and in front of that there is a smaller radiator type looking thing.I imagine that is the cooler.Thanks

    the tag in the glove box will have your build options, like G80 (locking rear diff) anyways look for code VYU (snow plow prep)

    If you truck has the Z71 option you have an external trans cooler. NBS 1/2 tons did not come with a plow prep option, unless you have a reg cab I believe.

    i have a 2005 silverado 1500 z71 i am also putting a plow on it in july and i was going to look into putting a trans cooler in by the looks of it it has one in it i looked for VYU (snow plow prep)
    and i didnt see it i dont no if theres a big difference between chevy and gmc i dont think so correct me if i am rong.
    also i was wondering what other things should i put on my truck to get it ready for a plow
    i have put a leveling kit in timbers i plan on putting a trans gauge in and a cooler if i dont have one and maybe a oil cooler?? anything else you guys can think of
