It's got great power still for being the original motor. Buckets seats and console were never part of the Z71 pkg in 2000, they were extra cost options added to the vehicle when it was ordered. Look in the glove compartment for the Service Parts Identification label and look for Z71 on the label. The tbi setup is good the heads,intake,cam make it what it is. Was always mechanically taken care of. Nothing prevented those options form being ordered along with the Z71 off road suspension pkg. Front seat sliders do not work, the cables broke on both seats.
Runs, moves, I did drive it 5 miles to get home but I would recommend you trailer or tow it. Never had any leaks but hard to prove now with tranny crack. I was looking ffor junkyard axels and saw that many z71 silverados had an open differential. Things I recall from last 5 yearsAll fluids changed at 211k miles have receipt. Leaks fluid badly from crack near tail shaft and will need to be replaced.
The rear brake line rotted through as well where the rubber line meets the frame. . Send me a message if you'd like to look at it. Motor runs great, no smoke on startup. Front brake job at 212k miles have receipt. Ran and drove fine until I hit the transmission on a rock moving some stuff around at a friends and cracked the transmission case.
Unfortunately I let it sit there in the grass for two years and the rust really set in. Full exhaust including cat in 2015 with glass pack. Just because you have the still kers doesn't mean you have a locker I didn't knowthis til a few days ago. Has tonneau cover and sprayed on bedliner. Up for sale locally so I reserve right to end early. Also note; both owners and used car dealers will place the Z71 decals on non-Z71 equipped trucks so the presence on the decal on the rear fenders is not proof its a Z71 equipped truck.
Rims are from 2008 Yukon. I owned a 99, 01, 04, 08 and now a 2010 so I am very familiar with the option and its contents. Clean clear title, notarized and ready to go. Trust me you dont have to tell me about the tbi350's. It likely mandated some other extra cost options be purchased such as 4x4, different size tires but lacking the order info from 2000 I cannot say for sure.
Hoping the gear ratio was the same i put it in and it works fine to this day but ive noticed its much easier to do burnots withought a limited slip mechanism. I wasn't thinking about going too crazy on a rebuild. As far as the rear gearing i think you have 3:73 or 3:42s which are pretty good as they are. . . .
