I'm pretty sure it'll be 10" drums being that your truck is a Supercab/4.0L/4x4... but have a look at your drums. Is there any fins on it? If I remember right the 9" ones sort of have fins all the way around while the 10" ones are more smooth with a sharper edge. Check out a site like rockauto.com that has pics of parts and you'll see what I mean!

I'm thinking because it's a 4.0L 4x4 Supercab. Did you have a look at them to see what they look like?

Yes, any one or all of those gets you the automatic upgrade to the 10" drums.
