To EGR delete or not

Here is my situation...right now my ect and eot are within 2-4* which means I'm good. BUT, I tow a toy hauler, about 9000 loaded. The truck is an 06 with 33,500 on the clock and runs great. So, do I fix what is not broke and do the egr delete, oil cooler, stc, oil screen, dummy plugs, and whatever else, or just drive it and hope it "keeps on truckin"? I will do all the work myself so from a cost standpoint, spend a little now or alot later IF....

If it were me, I would flush the coolant. Your temperatures are perfect no need what soever to change that oil cooler anyway.

Got gauges? Keep an eye on it until she has the warning signs, IMO. But if you want to get dirty and do it, why not?
