Default silverado ls and lt model differences

Hello,

I was just wondering what the differences are between the 99 - 07 Chevy Silverado LS models and the LT models? Besides the power windows and locks, are there any other big ones? I would consider getting a used LS model for a truck because they are cheaper, I just want to know if I would be missing out on any "must have" options. Also, how hard would it be to add the power windows/locks and fog lights to the LS trucks to make them look like they were factory added. Thanks.

they changed the option packages every year or two so i wouldnt count on anything. as far as the windows, locks, and fog lights i would get one with windows and locks already which most come with mostly only the w/t come without. the fog lights if you are handy with electronics you can get the fog lights and switch for the fog light equipped vehicles. i did it on my 03 and 07 monte carlo'* and it didnt come with the wires so i had to run my own for and put a relay in

I believe most of the addons he'* asking about like the power windows, mirrors, door locks etc all have their own control module that actually talk to other modules. It won't be as simple as adding a power wire, and a few switches to make it like factory.

So like Justin said, you would be better off spending the extra money on the higher model vs the lower model. Less headache.
