hey GMFS'ers!!! I'm selling my truck tomorow if everything goes right & looking at new z71 Vmax's. I have some plans for the new truck & was wondering what tranny the Vmax has? I have heard 4l60,4l80, & 4l70 (which I never heard of before). Also think this was covered in a thread already but they come with EITHER a 3.73 or 4.10 rear?

THANKS & :big_banana_Dance:

Im sure they'll chime in soon. But if i remember correctly it has the 4l80. And if it has a towing package, it'll have a 14bolt. 4.10's didnt come in all of them.

When building one on the chevy site is says all the Vmaxs have 9.5" rear (bought same as a 14 right?

Also again found some Vmax's with 4l70's.... They anygood? I would guess in between a 60 & 80?

What years are you looking at? the 07 and 08's had the 4l70e and the 09's have the 6l80e.

If the 08 has the slotted front bumper then it will have the max trailering package, which comes with the 4.10's, rear disk brakes extra tranny cooler and built in brake controller.

Edit: if it doesn't have the max trailering package, it'll have the 3.73's and rear drum brakes

the vmax has the 367hp 6.0 , the 4L70's have either 3.73 or 4.10 depending how it was optioned. i think the 09's have the option for the 6L80, and i know that there is no 4.10 option for the 6 speeds.

the slotted front bumper is INCORRECT i've seen many v'max's and regular silvys with the slotted front bumper and NO 4.10's

Yeah, the 07 & 08's vmax's were the first for the nnbs half tons to come with it until all the 09's now come with it. The slotted bumper designates the vmax
(07 & 08) w/ the max trailering package (4.10's). The vmax's that had 3.73's did not have the slotted front bumper

It does have the Max tow package, so it does have 4.10's.

no that is incorrect. there ARE 08's with slotted bumpers and 3.73's as well as 5.3 silverados with slotted bumpers in 08 also.
