For 98~00, the VSS sensor on the diff is the most common problem. However for 2000, there is another. Look underneath the truck near the left frame rail directly below the driver seat and you will find a large 40-pin connector that mates the body harness to the rear frame harness. This one has a nasty habit of filling with water and corroding the connections inside. Worth a look. Just loosen the center bolt to open it.
