Automatic to 5 speed switch on rear end, is it possible if it's same year? on 2003 Ford F-150

The rear end has gone out in our truck, we have found one for sale that is used. Ours is an automatic transmission and a 2wd, the one for sale is same year, still 2wd, but is a 5 speed, will it still work as long as it's limited slip?

Manual trans. usually has a lower ratio differental. Limited slip or not, doesn't matter as far as working. It should 'work'. IF it's MUCH difference in ratio, may give some ABS and trans. shift problems, i just dont know for sure!
