Question 05 6.0 blown head gasket

so i think i have a blown head gasket but i was hoping someone could confirm my suspicions. steam coming from oil level and fill tubes, loses coolant, no warm start.

now once i've diagnosed this problem, i need solutions on fixing it? whats the best way to go about this, i'm mechanically inclined, i'm thinkin i could take a decent stab at doing head gaskets and studs myself, but is it worth it?
or should i just take it to a shop?

what all will i need to replace the head gaskets(list of parts and special tools)
and can i do this without removing the cab?

any info is greaty appreciated.

I DO NOT TREAT MY TRUCK LIKE A GIRL. MY TRUCK WORKS HARD FOR MY MONEY. ALWAYS PUSHIN IT TOO THE LIMIT ALWAYS OFFROAD ALWAYS FAST!!! ME AND MY TRUCK ARE NOT AFRAID TO GET ROUGH OR DIRTY!!! GO CANADA GO!!!!

agreed ^^^^^^ yes its possible, very time consuming and frustrating but anything can be done. highly recommend pulling the cab but if you cant, o well, just pull your ac stuff all out on the passenger side and everything else off everwhere else and make sure the fridge is full

okay so, it's doable with enough beer, allright, anybody got a parts list for me pehaps even a cross sectional view of the engine or anything else that will help me get through my first time dismantling the 6.0, I've got the intro ford books for the motor and turbo, but they are really vague

and to those that have performed this repair before, what special or unregular tools will i need?
Thanks again!
