engine temp help!

hey guys I'm new to the diesel world I need some help with my truck. I noticed that the engine temp droped really low when I was driving on the highway about 70mph. I no with gas engines that can mean the T'stat has failed open my question is would that be the same thing for a diesel? I know the 6.0 have coolant problems could that be whats wrong too?

how do you know it dropped. what are you monitoring with or just using the dummy guages. with gassers, a sudden drop is caused by massive coolant loss through a hose or the rad. t stat stuck open wouldnt case a sharp drop but maybe a gradual decline.

cut me some slack, its a work truck.
