Nope, just looked it up on rockauto.com. Once on the sight put in the vehicle information and click on air/fuel. The throttle position sensor will pop up. You may have to remove the throttle body to get to it, I don't know. But you don't have to replace the whole throttle body. HTH. -Jim

They may have meant the IAC/TB. On the drive by wire trucks without the throttle cable the old Idle Air Control Valve has been integrated into the TB. A stepper motor now controls your main throttle blade and takes care of both idle air and throttle. These need to be replaces as one unit.
