Remove Heads?

I have my engine taken apart down to the heads. My question is should I remove the heads and check my head gaskets? I know some will tell me I might as well since I have it torn down so far. My question is because I have read in a few places that the head gaskets in our motors rarely ever go bad. It's mostly the LIM gaskets. I really don't want to struggle with getting the exhaust manifolds off and spending the extra money on head gaskets and new head bolts if it is not necessary. I would really appreciate some good input here. BTW.. my motor does have pretty high miles. 256,000. Thanks
