If I decide to replace the head gaskets myself, should I put in new head studs??

yes i would recommend using arp studs and black onyx mls gaskets. and while your in there you might as well do an egr delete. i have been pricing everthing for my truck and it comes out to just about 1500 dollars

While they're off have the heads checked for cracks and flatness. You can have them machined no more than .008" (preferrably less) to get them flat again. If they're warped any more than that they're no good and will need replaced.

Where are you located?

While the engine is completely apart I would do Head studs, new gaskets, heads checked, oil cooler rebuild, coolant filter and oil bypass, and fuel system
