Should I sell or not sell my 1990 GMC Suburban V1500 4x4 350 gas for a 1989 Suburban 6.2 Diesel?

I'm torn in between. I've been wanting to get a diesel Suburban after having two(on my 2nd one now) gas Suburbans. The first one was a R1500 1990 with a 700r4 and I'm now with my second which is a 90' V1500 4x4 with a gas 350 with a rebuilt 700r4. The gear ratio is where the engine reaches high rpms especially in 1st andshifts quick than the last suburban I had. Ok to make it short.... I saw this Suburban for sale which is a 89 V2500 6.2 rebuilt diesel with a 4x4 and 480LE Transmission. I've been reading and hearing that the 6.2 diesel is bad/good sluggish, good on fuel mileage. I don't tow as much. Only been a FEW times have I've towed and I towed LIGHT stuff if I had to. And I don't drive fast like a maniac. The suburban which is the 89 has good like new interior although the body does need paintbut that's about it. I wanted to install a diesel engine in my current (90 V1500) Suburban(because I hate to let it go) but I've been told to just sell it and get one with a 6.2 already in it. Should I sell for that one or keep what I have?

Oh, a rebuilt diesel.
Sounds like a charm.
Certainly, but get the name of the shop that rebuilt the engine. Just in case they put the whoosidinky washer in upside down. You know the one. The one deep inside the engine.
