Did I screw it up?

Hauling a gooseneck load of wood chips for horse bedding tonight and the truck puked some coolant. The load plus trailer weighed in around 20-21k. Pulled some long steep grades. I tried not to push on it too hard. Engine fan cut on three times at 215 when pulling the steep grades and the first two times it cooled the truck off fast but the third time the truck chimed engine temp needle shot up but didnt peg red. Once the fan cut off the third time it dropped engine temps literally 25-30 degrees very fast. Eased on the the drop and it never got any warmer than 205. Unloaded and hauled *** back home. Truck did pile some coolant but runs fine.

Could I have blown te head gaskets?

What's the next step to go about checking it out

I would see what the levels are, do you still have factory EGR cooler in place?

just a thought but check out your cap too and make sure it is tight and holding pressure.
if you have the factory cap they can tend to fail under stress or so i have heard

Either one will be fine. Probably cheaper to go with a parts store one.
Have you ever looked into doing the manual fan mod? basically you put a grounding switch in line on your fan. With a simple flick of a switch you have full control of the fan. I use it while towing in the mountains. Think about it the truck waits to turn on the fan until it gets hot. I like being proactive and getting a jump on the temps while its not hot.
This probably isnt gonna fix your puking issue but its something to consider.

I had heard about the mod earlier just havent gotten around to doing it. I gt a code last night about a fan speed sensor with the insight.

I just hope the gaskets aren't blown. It's never puked before

I was getting that same code. A simple way to check you head gaskets is to plumb a 30 psi guage into the small return line going into your degass bottle. Take the truck out for a drive and push it around a bit and watch your guage. If it goes up and down like a rpm tach then.....well ya you lost the gasket.
