Ok, you can just remove the head and install a new head gasket and NEW head bolts. This is a quick fix for someone who has a lot of miles and does not want to spend money, HOWEVER: remember this<<<<<<<<<<< if you want to keep the truck>>>>>>>> and you like the truck>>>>>>> Do an inframe overhaul BEFORE 1mil miles. You CANNOT purchase an extended warranty on an overhaul after the 1M mark. The new trucks have several items worth noting. They will NOT get your fuel mileage. The new trucks have payments.
So just my 0.02 for what is??? run the truck for another 100K if it will do so. Take it in at 900K or 925K and get the inframe done. If you have money to spare you can always get a reman 3/4 engine or full reman engine.
I have opened a few up at that mileage and found several things wrong. I found rusty head bolts that were eaten up with rust. This is caused by the liners leaking where the liners touch the block. The overhead had the old style 'buttons' on the running gear and required replacement. Lots of little things to go wrong eventually. Your money your choice.

It is said if you sit by the river and watch the water flow by long enough, your enemies will pass by. This I believe to be true. It is also possible to watch your loved ones pass by as well.
