    If I were you I'd call a local lock shop. They'll be able to tell you exactly how much one is for your vehicle, and that it will fit. That one looks correct, but they had at least two different cylinders fopr the trucks, probably more. (based on year)

    You can follow the tilt column tightening procedure to get down to the lock cylinder, it's an easy swap.

    Is your key worn down? Worn keys but a good lock cylinder can cause problems too. If you can, you might take it down to the lock shop so that they can verify it's shot.

    I agree with Dorian. Go to a lockshop and get the key checked first and if it's just a key needed it'll only cost about 6 bux. They probably charge about 12 bux for a new ignition cylinder if one is needed, same as the ebay price. Not sure if yours has a screw retainer, as the one on ebay, or if you just have a spring clip retainer, but the lockshop will know.
