    GMCs look better than Chevys. Other than grill, headlight and few trim parts they are the same

    GMC and CHEVY have ALL the same components under their skin... go with which ever one you like.

    The real differences is in what is standard and optional in the trucks. Many time the GMC will have something standard where the Chevy it will be an option. But in recent years their packages are starting to line up more.

    I just bought a 2004 Chev. Same person I have gotten my last three trucks from. He gives me a good deal and I rent space from him. I would have loved to get the GMC though. I think it has a nicer grill and lights.

    They are built on the same line, they have the EXACT same options. There is nothing extra or standard you get from the factory on a GMC over a Chevy. The GMC costs a few hundred more typically and in this case you are paying for the name.

    The colors are even the same, they are just called different names. I'd say buy whatever you can get the better deal on or whoever treats you better on your trade. payup

    Final answer 2500 HD Chevy or GMC

    Thanks for all the opinions and info. Ended up with an '05 2500 HD Chevy - gas. Loaded to the gills ...even stuff I didn't really need...like pwr seats, alloy wheels. 13400 miles on it, and warranty until Oct '08. Price seemed right. Haven't had a new truck in 20 years (still have my '87) !!! This is more like a cadillac than a truck. Hope it works as hard as the '87.

    Now I need a new plow. I don't want to hack the front air dam. Boss dealer says he doesn't have to. Mount hangs pretty low, but talked to some guys who have them an like them ok. I have a long nasty driveway (600') in VT and do some neighbors' also to help them out. Any advice??
