Replying to an old message:
I've been in many GM/Chevy manufacturing plants and they are made
identically. It literally is just a matter of what trim goes on and what
tailgate is put on.
The assembly is IDENTICAL with 99.9% of the parts the same. All the
welders, pre-paint, everything, identical.

must be urban legend as I suspected when I posted this some time ago as you
can see the :) face at the end of the message.
I have purchased parts for my GMC at the Chevy dealer without any problems
The only real difference now is that GMC has some option package
differences than Chevrolet and a couple higher trim levels. Other than
that NO difference. Built on the same production lines and most parts
that are different are only cosmetic. A few years ago I know that they
really didn't watch what was going on very well. A friend of mine
ordered a new Chevy truck, spec'd it out and when it came in he was real
happy. Went down to pick it up and just about started crying due to
laughing so hard. The dealer actually got ticked but Bob decided to keep
it the way it came. What was strange you ask?
Chevrolet Dealer- yep,
Ordered and built and sold as Chevrolet Truck- yep,
Exterior trim Chevrolet Silverado package- yep,
Interior trim package Silverado- NOPE Had GMC badge on the steering
wheel, on the right dash trim was GMC and ONE door panel had a GMC
badge. OOPS guess it was a Friday build....
