Derale's radiator fans are designed as a universal-type fit item so that the fans can fit a wide variety of vehicles. To be sure that either of the fans you are looking at, the Derale 20 Inch Rigid, Steel-Blade Race Fan, Belt Driven # D17320 and the Derale 20 Inch Fan Clutch Fan # D17120, will fit well on your 2002 Dodge 3500 the best solution is to measure the space available for the radiator fan. I spoke with my contact at Derale and he confirmed that measuring is the best way to determine the fit of a radiator fan. I've attached dimensional drawings of the fans for you to see the space each fan needs.

My contact at Derale also mentioned that for the fan to really be beneficial to your truck, you will need to use the shroud. This will help funnel and direct the air flow. Without the shroud, the new fan will not do much to help cool the engine.
