I got a look at the changes for the 2005 2500 HD trucks.


The Chevrolet has the same front end, but has a "Power Bulge" In the hood like the 01-02 did.


Not sure, but I don't think they will be changing the GMC front end or hood.


Option for a factory installed Power Moonroof. It was an Extended cab truck. It looked very nice! I couldn't see any other changes on the inside.

No pictures, I just caught a look at one. Don't want anyone to get in trouble over it though. Just keep this on the down low, just between us GM Junkies.

At least it is a change for the HD's to make them stand out a little from the other Silverado's. A power moonroof would be a nice option as well. You don't really see those in a FS pickup. I would like to see what they look like for sure.

I love the moonroof in my F350. I will miss it with the 2500HD that I am looking to get, but GM is a little too late with that option for me.

Does it appear the hood will fit the 2004? Edited by: SonnyBear

I heard about the hood as well. Would like to see pics for sure. I liked it when the '01-02's stood out above the 1/2 tons.

I hope they keep the GMC just the way it is. Do you remember if the truck had bench or bucket seats w/ the moonroof? Unfortunately I don't think GM will offer the moonroof w/ bench seats which means I would have to go aftermarket $$$. Oh yeah...don't forget the new Allison tranny which is suppose to be beefier than the updated '04 trannies.Edited by: y2kboti

Yes it "Looks" like the new hood may fit an 04.


I agree about the GMC I think it would be hard to improve on how it looks right now.


I'm pretty sure it had the console with buckets.


No idea on the Transmission.

Yea the CHEVY needs all the help it can get for looks, GMCs look GREAT.


The wife's H2 has buckets w/ power moon roof.

You can have a moonroof from ASC for about $1100 and it will be bigger than the one in the Ford

<font color="blue">If the info on the 2005's is still secret how soon till we can see GMC pics. Are there any mags that show sneak peeks of the partially covered GMC's?

Man, this kills a guy. Has his truck for 5 months and the new stuff is already coming down the pipeline. That's the way it goes. I would like to see the '05 fittin' my truck, although I don't know if I would actually go through with switching. Also, wish I could have a moon roof, but if it is only available with the buckets/console, wouldn't help me out any. Gotta have the bench. What's this about the tranny? A new one coming too?

The hood will fit an '04 but the new grill is taller so it will need to be swapped also.

Somewhere I read that all Gas V-8's will go to aluminum blocks? Anyone hear anything like this?

Sounds believeable. Read it somewhere while researching my new '04.
