depends on the factory engine trans combo.    4.11 all the way up to a 3.08  10 bolt or 12 bolt??

There should be a code stamped onto an axle tube, probably covered in dirt but if you can find it I should have a book to decode it.

The axle identification code is the 3rd letter of the axle code located on the front of the right-hand axle tube, about three inches from the differential cover.  3.08 10-bolt was the most common, but can't be sure without the code.
