Currie builds some nice stuff but is way overpriced. There are a lot of late model mustang rears or 8inch ford or 9 inch ford rears laying around cheap that will be the correct width for your truck.(bought 2 friday 100 bucks for both) .Any local shop can rebuild the center section for you for a lot less cash.(if it even needs it) If your not going drag racin the 8inch ford works well but not a real good choice of gears. The 9inch has a ton of gear choices if you need to change later.Lenny what are you using for a front end??? The reason i ask is for the bolt pattern on the wheels is easyer to keep the pattern the same front and rear if you want to have a spare with your truck.(some dont care they just keep a AAA card LOL)If you have the old rear still measure it from axle flange to axle flange(not backing plates) Let us now what the width is and we can help better.
