This is a fairly easy engine to replace the head gasket on, but it's very very important to make sure the surfaces are both clean and flat! 2 things you really need to invest in are a decent torque wrench (sears/crafstman has a good one for a decent price) and a haynes manual. There's a very informative writeup in the haynes.

It depends which engine the truck has. If it is the 4cyl. it is a several hour job, if it is a 6 cyl. it is twice as long, major work. No way to describe it here.

Replacing the head gasket on any vehicle is a long and complicated process, however if you wish to see basic step-by-step instructions go to the related question on the right side of the page "How do you replace a head gasket?"
