    if the caps are held on with lug nuts then they probably should.

    I know the second Gen 3/4 ton trucks have different size or different thread, I forget exactly which, so no, you can't use the caps on 1st gen, because the lug nuts have a special lip on them to hold the caps

    Ugh! I saw some 1st gen on eBay and sent a message and before I got a response they were sold! Lesson learned.
