Depends how good you are, and what kind off tools and equipment you have. Most techs including myself remove the cab to install head studs.

this has been asked many times and done many times. people have reported back saying no problems. i myself would never do it but to each their own right? the theory is that the gasket sealant lifts a little when you undo a bolt and it never really seals properly when retightened. its also not a recommended procedure according to ford.
