    Very interesting thread. I never new there were so many differances. I just bought an 02 ext and really love it. Cant say I would change anything. It does have 22 inch wheels and a billet grill. The all should have that. What a differance they make.

    don't forget the widows regulator buttons changed, and heated seat buttons changed '02 seats heat both bottom and back with only high and low. '03 you can choose back or both with low med high, folding mirror button location changed, '02 is on the bezel, '03 is located in the mirror adjustments. Sorry if I was a little off with something.

    Gauge cluster is different in the 02 then 03-06s. Platinum 03-06s have different gauges as well.

    03-06 platinums have air conditioned seats as well as heated seats.

    02s only have a bench row they don't have captain seats in second row.

    analog on star from factory upgrades was for 03 and up as they were analog unfortunately the 02's didn't get the upgrade due to differences on both the module setup and the data bus of the truck but that is something i don't have to worry about as i have a 03 and it is upgradable to the digital onstar.

    So 2002 has a bigger sub in the center console, nice! I feel like this thread should be stickied!

    The sub for the 02 is a 8inch under the left rear trim panel and mid range horn drivers under the center console
    the sub for the 03-06 is a 6.5 dvc sub under the center console and the mid range horn drivers were dropped
