Replacing head bolt--help

Hey folks!

I'm going to be replacing one of the head bolts on my 85 CJ7/258 with a studded bolt. I read a few posts regarding a similar situation and it seemed that the prefered method was to simply remove and replace the one bolt--rather than loosening all of the bolts and then retorquing them all. I think that's the logical answer, but just wanted to get a few more opinions before I do this.

No problem at all, just make sure the motor is COLD, I mean like sitting all night.
