I have a 2002 2WD with 280,000 miles on it. I just rebuilt the engine due to it burning too much oil but it was running nice and smooth otherwise.

From what I understand, the head gaskets aren't the problem. Aluminum heads on a cast iron block is. The two heat at different rates and if the vehicle is ever overheated, something has to give. Keep it from overheating, run good oil and do regular maintenance and you will be good for many many miles of troublefree driving.
