Probably not. Cross reference your bars to the 2500 on sway away's website. Sway away makes a great bar for your truck. It's 30 percent stiffer and stronger than stock.

Sway aways site lists them as unavailable. Who knows... They may be the same. Measure them for length if you can't find the info on the web. Google is your friend.

Just call your local dealer and ask the parts department or a dealer mechanic. Ive been considering 2500 leaf springs in the back of my 1500. T bars would be a good addition also.

Be prepared to do some welding! A lot of times, the leaf perches are different on various duty trucks. It's a good mod though. Consider add a leafs or custom springs to strengthen the back too.
