Yes it will fit and run everything but I'd get a better alt also. I had one in my 88 reg cab in the stock location. I stayed in there for about 3 years before it got moved to my blazer and finally died a few days ago.

If you're planning on making the charging system run huge amounts of power (3 compressors and stereo in my opinion is pretty huge) then do not get a Red Top. They weren't really made for running large amounts of power, from what I've read. I've seen a bunch of people thinking Optima is Optima so they get a Red Top because it's cheaper and try to power a bunch of crap and then it fries. After that they go and talk crap on how they bought a $150 battery and it died right away, even though they were using it in the wrong application. Definitely get a Yellow Top, if you're going with Optima. I've had mine for about a 4 years now, and I bought mine used. No problems, all I have are good things to say.
