honestly i think it all depends on wether you have the right ring gear size in your truck. my truck came stock with the 10 bolt 8.5" ring gear. you probably do, because i think they gave the 8.2" ring gear to most cars. im pretty sure almost all trucks have the 8.5" ring gear. the way to check for sure, is you look at the rear diff cover. look for pictures online of the difference. if it has the 8.5" ring gear, it will have a specific cover versus the 8.2".

i just found it online. look at the rear diff and cover. if i read the info right, all 8.2 and smaller ring gear 10 bolts have a standard oval or "round" diff cover on them with no ears. all 8.5 ring gear 10 bolts have tabs on the bottom and sometimes on the top. they look like like ears coming off the bottom. they are of decent size and you will know the difference.
