Default 6.0 Swap...is it worth it?

Alright, I currently have an '06 1500 with that garbage 4.3. It's been giving me hell lately and the truck is paid off. I have been thinking about a 6.0 swap, mostly because I'm so tired of having a truck with no power and the inability to pass on the highway.

So...two major questions:

Is the swap worth it? I figure the motor will run me $5-6K and another $1k and change for all the peripherals.

Is this a straight bolt-on? I imagine I'll have to move motor mounts, but I can't think of anything else that would be an issue.

Lt me know what y'all think.
