What should I do ? Lift cab , pull Motor or in cab head gasket

Ok guys I've been Around this stuff for awhile but this is my first ford to do head gasket . Iam working on 2004 f350 6.0 . I've got a lift so lifting the cab is no problem . And heavy duty engine stand also so whitch is the best way to do the head gaskets ? Please let me know asap the truck is already apart down to the heads . Which is the best way and if I lift cab what all do I need to take off ?

Any tricks would be great

Pull the cab buddy. By FAR the easiest way to heads on the 6.0. You can leave the cab on the frame for 7.3 heads, but not a 6.0.

Theres no way you're gonna get the ARP studs (please tell me you're using ARP studs) in with the cab on, and I'd personally rather lift it than remove that f-ing heater box.

Regardless, lifting the cab is the easiest way.

Let me know if you need any pointers from here on, or pictures. I've done...lets just say a "few" of these, and would be glad to help!
