Default 5.2 vs 5.9

I'm running a tranny cooler as I was told a few years back when we got the truck that the tranny in these trucks need to be looked after. My issue is wondering if upgrading to a 5.9 is a good move. Is their reputation as good as the 5.2, which has always acted bulletproof in my experience. Just looking for a bit more towing power. Thanks for the comment, though. Just looking for feedback as I know nothing about the 5.9.
