4R100 question/advice

well i've got 256,000 on this truck JUST today. we have had it since 2002 and i've driven it since 2006. since i've driven it, never have i even done a trans service on it. (i know, shame on me) from 02 to 06, idk of any service that might have been done to it. i know i put at least 50k miles on it but i honestly couldn't give you a clue as to how much i put on it. maybe 50-100k.
now that you know my life store, what i'm wondering is if i should even touch the thing with a 39 1/2 foot pole? i talked to a few guys. the ford place and another local chain of oil/service places said to NOT flush it and to just go with a gasket/filter change. another guy at the trans repair place said don't even mess with it unless i wanna start fixing stuff.
i really don't know much about these transmissions so any thing is gonna be help to me

how long did it take for them to eventually quit?
and about how much was it each time for a new one?
