What was the first year for the "Z71" option on a 3/4 ton?

And by Z71 option, I mean the GMT400 era trucks like these with the Z71 sticker on the side of the truck. I'll be honest, I used to think this was a 1/2 ton-only option, but I've noticed some of the newer trucks (as in, very new 3/4 tons) with the Z71 sticker. Just curious what year the option was first available on a 3/4 ton and when the sticker was first seen on a 3/4 ton. Thanks!

The first year Z71 was offered on a 3/4 ton truck was 2007.

Only Z71 equipped trucks got the stickers from the factory.

Some people liked to put the stickers on the side of their trucks(to falsely advertise).

Thanks, that's kinda what I was thinking (i.e. not until a few eras later), but I've sure seen a slew of 8 lug mid-90's "Z71s" lately around here and on CL... I realize they could be body swaps, but certainly not very likely. Seems like a lot of work to peel off a 4x4 sticker and place a Z71 sticker in its place, ha. Thanks again!
