A pic of your engine bay would be nice. I think the issue is you have a round air box and the years listed are a square box. I would imagine the tube layout is the same, just a matter of bolting the heatshield onto the truck. It may bolt on. If not some el brackets from a hardware store should make it work.

I can't see the pics, but....The newer air kits use the holes that hold the stock air box to mount the new filter bracket. A creative person should be able to make it work after a trip to a hardware store.
