Don't worry about the high mileage. Maintain it and it'll keep going. I put 250k and 275k on my last 2 gas burners. The one with 250k was rear-ended and totaled but was still a VERY dependable daily driver until it's untimely demise. I sold the other one at 275k just because I was tired of driving it. Saw it still running the roads 3-4 year after I sold it.
I have 304k on the one I'm driving now but it's a Duramax.
Not sure how much of a mechanic you are but consider dropping the truck at your favorite shop and have them check everything - especially front-end parts and U-joints. See what they come up with.
