bed plate gasket replacement question

I brought my truck in for a new oil cooler. The service writer just called me to inform me that the bed plate gasket is also leaking.

My question is, do the heads get pulled to change the bed plate gasket? If so im going to get studded while its out. And if thats the case, which studs should i go with? ARP, elite H-11's? Thanks for the input.

The whole motor needs to be removed for the bedplate gasket to be replaced.

Heads do not have to come off to do the bedplate. Although they may make you a deal to do it all at the same time while the engine is out?...

I run ARP's and heavy tunes(PCM&FICM tunes) with no head issues.

Do you by chance have a CCV catch can mod? Also... do you have a 6.0 or the 6.4? I ask because I haven't read too much of the 6.4's bed plates leaking... mainly the 6.0.
