Very possible with the cab on/motor in. Requires some extra work, removal of the evap core, and some firewall messaging. Lots of people on this board have done it. Check ebay for the gaskets though. Ford sells em for 300 a side in a kit. I got two full kits, and other gaskets for the upper half of the motor also for about 350.
If you had compression problems its best to get the heads resurfaced. Some techs won't. Be it lack of time, money, warranty coverage. Doubt its ignorance. My truck was done at 99 800m (stock bolts) and pulled em again at 110 000m for preventative. They were warped .004. Machine shop guy was surprised I wasn't getting terrible compression.
