Neighbor's 3500 Transfer Pump Issues

My neighbor, who doesn't do much on the Internet, has a 2002 3500 flatbed, manual tranny, with a bad original lift pump. It is a farm work truck. He hauls his equipment and cattle behind it. Mostly short distances but over some rough roads with steep grades. I'm not sure what his trailer is rated at, but it dwarfs my 20 ft 10K bumper pull.

The truck is down. He has determined the lift pump is bad. The condition of the injection pump is unknown. He has asked around and received conflicting advice on what to use to replace the OEM pump. The price range of the advice has varied widely. Like for most small farmers, money is tight. He doesn't want to spend more than necessary. On the other hand, the truck could use a bit more grunt to haul his heaviest stuff up the grades without going overboard on the costs or stresses, so some additional flow capacity would be a plus.

I think he believes that all the replacement pumps are in tank units. A bit of web searching earlier tells me this isn't the case.

He asked my advice because I have a 2500. But mine is a later model with common rail injection, and I don't really know much about the 24vs. This is all the info I have on his truck at the moment. If more is needed I will get if from him.

Any suggestions on a good choice of pump for his situation would be greatly appreciated.
