You would be much better off spending the money on:
1. 4.10 gears for your '06. That will raise the tow rating to 10,000-ish.
2. Add a leaf to your rear springs.
3. Upgrade to LT-rated tires.
4. Install a B&W Turnover Ball in the bed.
Then you'll have a setup like Charles Todd's, except a few years newer. It'll pull every bit as well as that old oil burner, plus you won't have another license and insurance to deal with, and it'll cost you less than buying that other truck in the first place.
The insane pulling power in diesels didn't start coming on until after 2000. Before that, diesels were gutless, smokey, smelly, problematic things. Cummins is about the only pre-2000 diesel you'd want to consider unless working on them is a hobby for you.
