1995 Chevy Dually Lifted – The fourth generation of the C/K series is a range of trucks produced by Geral Motors. Marketed by the Chevrolet and GMC brands from the 1988 to 2002 model years, this generation was the final version of the C/K model line. The C/K nomenclature itself became exclusive to Chevrolet, with the GMC division applying the GMC Sierra nameplate to all tires in its full-size pickup truck line. Built on the GMT400 platform, the fourth-generation C/K was not given a moniker (ie, “Rounded-Line series”). After its creation, the model line was informally known to the public as “OBS” (Old Body Style), referring to its successor the GMT800.
Introduced in early 1987 for the 1988 model year, the fourth-generation C/K was initially produced as full-size pickup trucks and chassis cabs, later expanding to of full-size SUVs. The model line will overlap the production of its predecessor and successor. Like its predecessor, the fourth-generation C/K shares body commonality with GM’s medium-duty commercial trucks.

After the 2000 model year, the fourth-generation C/K was discontinued and replaced by the GMT800 platform (introduced for 1999); The heavy-duty chassis cabs remained in production until 2002. Following the GMC Sierra, Chevrolet adopted a singular Chevrolet Silverado nameplate for the full-size truck line (which remains in use). .

During nearly 14 years of production, the fourth-generation C/K was assembled by GM at multiple facilities in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
With design operations led by Geral Motors Truck and Bus Group. Compared to its predecessor, computers played a bigger role in the development of the fourth-generation C/K, with GM using computer data to develop components and accessories for the car.
The second vehicle to adapt the GMT platform nomenclature, GM assigned the model line the GMT400 internal codame, replacing the tradition of monikers for its full-size trucks (ie, Rounded Line, Action Line, Task Force, Advance Design). During the development of the GMT400 platform GM designers based their prototypes on the compact GMT325 S-series (S10 and S15/Sonoma)
As a truck, the C/K is styled with straight lines to maximize space and function, but designed to optimize its aerodynamics, to improve fuel economy. With a flush, curved grille and front bumper, it adopted many upgrades of the Rounded-Line generation, including sedan-style doors and flush window glass.

Nearly 20 years after removing them from its vehicle lines, GM removed the VT windows from the C/K trucks (the first full-size trucks to do away with them).
Under the redesign, the K-Series four-wheel drive trucks underwent a major upgrade, as the front axle received indepdt front suspension for the first time.
To increase strength, the chassis has been redesigned with a fully welded frame with a boxed front section for strgth and rigidity; to better resist corrosion, more galvanized steel is added to the body.
As the fourth-generation C/K model line was introduced during the 1987 calendar year, GM expanded its full-size truck line for the 1987 model year by redesigning the third- generation C/K as R/V series. With the two full-size truck lines sold separately, the product change allowed GM to shift buyers to the new model line. In a more subtle change, the trim level was changed (to match the fourth-generation C/K).

For the traditional start of the 1988 model year, GM sold 1 ⁄2 -ton R/V trucks;
The 3 ⁄4 -ton trucks were discontinued after 1989. For 1990 and 1991, the series was offered by Chevrolet and GMC as the R/V 3500 crew-cab pickup and chassis cabs, along with full-size SUVs.
For 1992, GM launched production of crew cabs in the fourth-generation C/K body (along with full-size SUVs), marking the end of the Rounded-Line series after 18 model year.
The fourth-generation GMT400 C/K model line was introduced in April 1987 for the 1988 model year. Produced for nearly 14 years, the fourth-generation C/K underwent several minor revisions through its production, including a mid-cycle revision for the 1995 model year. model.

From 1988 to 1991, the model line was sold with its predecessor (the “Rounded-Line” C/K) and sold with its successor (the GMT800 Silverado/Sierra) from 1999 to 2000. For 2001 and 2002 , the pickup trucks were discontinued, with the model line sold only as a C3500HD heavy-duty chassis cab.
In a nomenclature revision, GM adopted the 1500/2500/3500 payload series (previously used by GMC) for all full-size trucks (the Rounded-Line R/V series would do so for 1989).
For 1990, Chevrolet and GMC pickup trucks underwent a minor exterior revision, with upper trims (Chevrolet Scottsdale/Silverado, and GMC SLX/SLE) replacing four sealed-beam headlamps with white- ls composite headlamp; base trims (Cheyne and GMC SL) continue to use two sealed-beam headlamps. Two new versions (exclusive to Chevrolet) were introduced: the W/T 1500 and the 454SS. The W/T 1500 (W/T= Work Truck) is a de-contted version of the Cheyne marketed for work; the 454SS combined elemts with the Sport appearance package and the Silverado with the 7.4 L V8 in the 3500-series trucks.
For the 1992 model year, the Rounded Line (R/V series) was retired (after 18 years), with GM moving crew-cab pickups and full-size SUVs to the GMT400 model line (almost 5 years after its introduction). Because its design was effectively overtaken by the extded cab, the single-seat “Bonus cab” was not carried over (all crew cabs already had rear seats). In another change, trim levels were reduced to two, with the mid-level Chevrolet Scottsdale and GMC SLX withdrawn.

For the 1995 model year, all GMT400 trucks underwent a mid-cycle revision, distinguished by a front fascia revision (for Chevrolet and GMC). The sideview mirrors have been redesigned and enlarged (adopted from the Suburban SUV); in extded cabs, rear side windows became standard equipment.
Several updates coincided with safety mandates, adding a driver’s side airbag to all 1500-series (and most 2500-series) vehicles, 4-wheel ABS, a cter brake light ( CHMSL), and a brake-shift interlock for the transmission.
Introduced around the same time as the Ford (albeit a previous model year), the feature was an option for all 1500-series extended-cab trucks.
The bch seat on Silverado/SLE-trim vehicles underwent a revision, with the cter seatback being moved to a fold-down armrest/console.

For 1997, the dashboard underwent a minor change to accommodate a passenger-side airbag (only vehicles with a GVWR of less than 8500 pounds were equipped, including the 1500-series and non-HD 2500s).
For 1998, GM changed the tailgate badging for pickup trucks. To reflect the 1996 divisional merger of GMC and Pontiac,
“GMC Truck” became “GMC” on all Sierras; Chevrolet introduced a tailgate badge for Silverado-trim pickups similar to the Suburban and Tahoe SUVs.
In August 1998, Geral Motors released the GMT800 generation of full-size pickups for the 1999 model year as a replacement for the fourth-generation C/K trucks introduced for 1988. The long-standing C /K nomclature was retired by Chevrolet in favor of a singular Chevrolet Silverado nameplate (as GMC did in 1988 with the GMC Sierra).

Newly rebranded the Chevrolet Silverado Classic and GMC Sierra Classic (dropping the Chevrolet Cheyne), GM continues to sell the Classic in all three payload series. Largely aimed at fleet sales, to keep production costs down, the 1500-series Classic was offered only with the 5.0 L and 5.7 L V8 and an automatic transmission and most of the previous Silverado interior trim (in an effort to control the pottial base -trim or W/T 1500 buyers towards the new Silverado).

The GMT400 model line was built on three wheelbases in its first year: the regular cab carrying over the 117.5 in (2,984 mm) and 131.5 in (3,340 mm) wheelbase lgths from the previous generation, and the bag extended cab with a 155.5 in (3,950 mm) wheelbase.
