Default blown motor. New opportunity

Hello looking for some opinions I have a 2000 dodge 3500 dually with a blown motor (5.9 24 valve) after 245,000. So now I am in the searching process for a new engine. As I understand it does not have to be a exact in the year? So if so which year would I be getting the best bang for the amount of money this is going to cost(still better then a truck payment). The only compliant I had with previous engine was the noise. I know that may sound weird, I just thought the cab noise was louder then I would have liked. Thanks for any advise, by the way I am a masonry contractor so the truck is used to pull heavy trailers, skid steers and our family camper.
