sure hope so, or your truck will try and tear itself apart.
actually it is possible to run slightly differnt ratios front to rear, it's common to see 4.09s matched with 4.11s for example.
the reasoning is that perfect match ratios are not always availabe in different axles.
the difference is so minescule that it doesn't matter because you shouldn't be running 4x4 on a high traction surface.
