2003 6.0 running hotter then normal

My truck normally doesn't get to over a 200 degree oil temp,when driving slow this weekend through some trails my oil temp got up to 210 unloaded ect also reached 210 at the same time then cooled back down, now after driving today normally my oil temp got up to 201 within 20 minutes of driving from 0-50mph through the city and once on the highway went up to 205, my deltas are within 10* It Has only been doing this for the a couple weeks and this is all unloaded but I am on 43 inch tires, IS this normal? I live in florida too no puking,zerex coolant,coolant fiter

Change your thermostat and use only a OEM. The oem will fail in the open position unlike aftermarket thermostats.
Kinda sounds like you may have a aftermarket one in the truck to me. I would go to dealer and pick one up. Also look at the radiator for being plugged up with debris.

Sure as long as you drain it in a clean container.

IMHO...anything you drain out...stays out. These things contaminate fluids so easily that to me...it just isn't worth it. I would be doing a flush too. Even if it's off schedule. But...just my 0.02.

Your EGR may have failed.

If your EGR failed it failed awhile ago and your oil cooler is now failing. If do you caught it early.
