Well...my 1996 has 117k on the tranny and runs fine. What are you going to be using your truck for? If you're doing heavy towing or hot rodding it, you're gonna have to consider beefing it up. If it's just going to be for light towing and general driving, you should be ok as is. Maybe a shift kit and a programmer to increase tranny pressure wouldn't be a bad idea. Also, take it in and have the fluid changed, including the torque converter. Notice the condition of the fluid. If it smells funny/burnt, you're in for repairs, otherwise you should be fine.
