If you have the stock cooler then you ECT and EOT should climb up at pretty much the same rate. I will assume that you was not pulling anything and that is was all mostly country driving just cruising, so that delta seems a little high to me. It is within limits but I would closely monitor your delta's. Your cooler might be slightly clogged. What kind/color of coolant are you running? Do you have a coolant filter?

You may also consider a different motor oil for winter and take a look at how dirty your radiator,air charge cooler etc. Restricted air flow can cause some problems as well.

In front of the radiator.

Has air inlets on each side. Comes out pretty easy.

I took my air cooler and my radiator to the local radiator shop and had them douche them out on their big tank. Flushed out all kinds of gunk. Cleaned the fins out like new as well. Think it was 20 bucks or so.

I have an 05 and it only takes me about 8 minutes to get to work. My ECT runs at 190 and my EOT runs 185 to 195. Usually its withing 3 to 5 degrees unless I am working her hard. When I am working my truck hard the most it goes is 10 to 12 but usually comes back to within 3 to 5 after getting up to speed on the highway.

Thats about right for the boost if you are running without a load on.

How long was your ride? I can't remember what TSB it was but in general never look at the numbers for the first 20 minutes. The truck has to be warmed and up to normal op temps before you can see if you really have an issue. Ford test the truck in empty and under load conditions to determine if you have a failed oil cooler. Not really a good idea to use the numbers from the first 20 min if the truck was cold, ie sat over night.
