lifting cab?

So can anyone tell me how hard it is to take the cab off to do head gaskets? i have a garage with a hoist. i noticed yesterday my degas bottle has fluid marks on it as if fluid is leaking around the cap and my coolant level is higher then normal. i checked it this morning when the truck was cold from sitting all night and the coolant level was still high. i dont recall adding any but might have the last time i changed my coolant filter and added too much. my engine has aprox 70k miles on it and the only mods are blue fuel spring and banjo bolts, sct x3 with gearhead slr and gryphon ficm programmer set to atlas 40. that may have been a little much for the stock head bolts. i rarely push the go pedal past half so i thought it would be alright but maybe not. once i properly diagnose the leak i'll go from there but wanted to know if taking the cab off was fairly simple or a time consuming job.
