Truck ideas, whats your thoughts?

Hi guys. I'm in the planning stages of upgrading my truck and looking for some input.

I'm currently running a 2002 silverado 2 wheel drive 4.3 v6, which does manage to pull all my trailers around, but I'm over my towing capacity. I have word that DOT is cracking down next year (they are very very very lax when it comes to trailers around here) so I'm looking at my options.

I've found that I can get a new 1500 4x4 with a 5.3 v8, a HD 6 speed auto, and a locking 3.42 axle and a towing capacity of around 9500lbs (my trailers are only rated for 7000.

Used trucks around here are scarse, I have found a 2006 3500 6.0L, but I think its way overkill for what I'm doing, and parts will be ridiculous to get for it around here. Any input would be great!
