Like stated above, it can be done. You just replace them one at a time, fully torquing each one and replacing them in the sequence you would torque down new bolts.
However, those driver side rear two or 3 make it so either the head has to come off or the cab has to come off. There is no way in hell you will get the new stud in there with the head still on. Guys have done heads with the cab on by removing the head with those 3 old bolts still in the head, then installing the head with the studs already in the head rubber banded on. With the head is sitting on the block, with the cab on, I do not think its possible to get the last 2 or 3 studs in unless you seriously start pounding the cab with a hammer and make room.
