You should be able to go to the parts store and request the belt for the non-CA truck.

There's several ways to measure for the correct belt if there is no application. Belts come in all sizes and you can buy them by the measurement (in inches).
You can cut your old belt that is too long and wrap it around the pulleys. Mark the belt where it overlaps the other end. Measure to the mark. Take the old belt to get the proper width and V angle.
You can also wrap a 1/2" tape measure around the pulleys and get a measurement at the top edge of the pulleys.

Take your old belt and cut it to fit. Then take it to the parts store and they will measure it for you. The numbers on the belt are the size in inches. Like a 6605 is 66.5" or some arrangement like that.
