The Chevy Silverado swb with a 4.3 vortec v6 and 2000 Chevy Silverado swb with a 4.8 vortec  v8 is a great engine, not as much power as the 5.7, but sufficient for most tasks. When you can afford to, upgrade to a newer truck with the engine/transmission, and equipment that you want. If you start swapping/changing things in your current truck, the resale/trade value could be hurt considerably.
