It will probably bolt right in as they used a 4.3 and a 2.8 starting around 1988.

But, you will have to upgrade the computer, wiring, brakes, suspension and everything that's around it for safe and effective use in the vehicle.

Not worth it. Put a 2.8 back in there from GM Goodwrench or a reliable rebuilt engine company. Otherwise, pitch the truck for one with a 4.3 already installed in it.
