Should work fine. Same axles as the SD truck. But I would hold out and see if you can find a D60 from an 02 up truck

yup it will work... but if you can find one from a 05+ you could bolt up a 4 link kit

The 05 axles are different lengths than the 99-04s. It would require wheel spacers and a swap of both front and rear axles unless you wanted to buy two different sizes of rims
