96 3.4L Taco bad head head gasket? <recall> any info?

Have a 96 3.4L 89,000 miles with a bad head gasket, ive ben doing some research and found some people have ben getting theres done under the recall and others have not? Am very curious to know anything about this issue? I read it was only a 10 year deal with the recall but some folks have ben taking theres in (i read) and getting lucky? Any advice or info would be greatly appreciated.
Thanx

Hopefully you wont have to do that job or pay someone to do it, itl get expensive in a hurry. X2 on calling the dealer, if they have a recall on it, get it done for free.99!
