Default What is the difference between tailgates? dual wheels vs. single rear wheel Rams

I need new tailgate for my Dodge Ram 3500 96' with dual rear wheels. I looked for a tailgate on Ebay, then I noticed on autopartswarehouse.com there is Fit Note: Dual Wheels for some tailgates. And some ebay postings say single rear wheel.
Is there really any difference between tailgates for Dual wheel and Single wheel trucks? I really need to know before I wanna buy a tailgate.
