How to tell a genuine Zr2

Recommended Posts

There is a red s10 4x4 in town with flairs on it and a ZR2 sticker on the back, And no one can tell him its a regular s10 he swears it's a zr2. :jester:

I can't believe no one responded w/ a smart ass comment and said look for the ZR2 stickers on the side of the bed! haha! Now before you mention it, I know they all don't come w/ the decals, cause mine is one lacking them. Just figured someone would have already thrown that out there.

 

x2.....I was also waiting for the Bilstein shocks comment....I've heard that one a few times, as well....

 

 

 

This is hilarious! Did some of y'all just spend a day or two tearing apart your Z looking for random stamps in the tranny and wheel wells. etc? Common, fess up, who went out to their Z after reading this post to find all these "markers" and then search for that one which hasn't been posted yet?

 

 

I saw most from having to wrench on it so much, then looking and being look "ohh, another zr2 stamp..."

I believe ZR2's have a full box frame and reg s10's don't

And you can pull the rear diff cover and check for the locker.

 

 

Oh but they didn't all come with a boxed in frame. I have a 1994 reg cab zr2 (glove box rpo, 8.5 rear, g80 rpo, flares, and leaf spring perches, track bar, ect....)

And it is NOT boxed in all the way it is a c frame from mid cab back

 

 

 

My old 1995 ext cab zr2 WAS boxed all the way back may be a 1994 only thing :Idunno:

 

I know this post is a little late but the info is good

My 96 Z doesnt have a full box, wish it did, the box stops right before rear leaf springs, had three cracks after the box on the passenger side when I bought it

 

Speaking about the stickers one of the guys at my work has a standard 4x4 with zr2 stickers on the bed, dude wont believe me when I tell him its not a Z, freakin dummy

The dealer who sold me mine found out the hard way that mine was, in fact, a ZR2.

They replaced the CV axle with a standard S10 Blazer unit and I destroyed it in the first hour ( the ZR2 axle is 3/4" of an inch longer) :KnaffiesBuggy:
