A few options became standard with trim packages, like Conquistas/Amarillos and SS/Diablos required sport mirrors. SS/Diablos also required required rally wheels. Almost everything else: V8 vs. V6, posi, power windows and locks, guages, buckets and consoles, bed rails, etc. were all seperate options and none were standard with any appearance package. Not a thing. If a customer only checked Z15 SS and nothing else, it would have the appearance package (two tone paint and an air dam, sport mirrors and rally wheels) but would be a bench seat, no tach, no gauges, no clock, no posi, crank windows, no tilt, blackwall tire build. Same with Conquista/Amarillo (except no rally wheels). With the exception of brand specific appearance packages like Black Knight/Royal Knight, the GMCs and Chevrolets were the same.

According to a GM bodyshop master mechanic, the differences between the Gmc version and Chevy version was that gmc came with double wall galvanized panels and Chevy was single wall. Otherwise everything was the same except for a few cosmetic details like grills and emblems and sometimes the front header. But that was for mid 90s trucks. Not sure if that held true for older stuff. I've yet to find any difference between Cabs and Cams other than badging.
