Tough call. If the '05 had 4x4, the decision would be easy for me. If 4x4 isn't a priority, then you have to decide based on other factors. For instance, is there a significant price difference? The '05 will have an updated front suspension with a tighter turning radius. I wouldn't buy any 6.0L I couldn't pick up with sufficient discount margin so you can justify whatever "bulletproofing" measures you intend to make for peace of mind. That is one good thing about the 6.0's reputation though. Usually you can find them cheap enough, that the margin is there to do the mods.
And here is another option. You don't have to buy either one of these vehicles just because you have the opportunity to. You can wait until something closer to what you want comes around. There are enough of these on the road and I see threads posted all the time about how someone just picked up a nice deal. Good luck with your decision.
