Is the egr still in it? If so you may want to investigate that first.

Park the truck with the nose downhill pull the egr valve and look for signs of wetness. If that is present the egr is most likely ruptured. The majority if the time the egr ruptures due to the oil cooler being clogged. In order to diagnose head gaskets both of them need to be in working order.
Do you have a monitor on the truck? If so what were eot and ect?

Take a few minutes and read the stickies, a few 6.0 head gaskets have failed here and there. Need a tip, immediately stop running it before you bend a rod. Get a monitor on the truck, before you get it repaired and running again.

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.
