Oil temps acting funny??

First off glad to be on here finally and sorry for the long post i just want yall to know whats been going on and what i have..I've got a 05 6.0 with 170,000 miles, egr delete, arp studs, sct tuner threw quicktrix, straight exhaust and it's on a 8" with 37s. A couple months ago I was pullin my 33ft camper threw some hills with the tuner on a tow tune and it puked some coolant out of the bottle ( this was probably 3 weeks after I did the egr delete so I'm thinking I may have over filled the coolant because after I refilled it a little to the new mark it hasn't leaked any at all. Then last week I borrowed a edge insight to read my coolant and oil temps to make sure the cooler was good and then temps never got more than 8 degree off for 3 days. I rear ended a car in some bad rain and the next couple days my coolant would read about 190 and oil would go as high as 220 sometimes. The highest I saw the difference was 31 degree. So I let my truck sit for a day and drove it again and the temps were back to readin coolant 200 and oil 208. Never got more than 10 off. But the coolant would drop to 170s for about a minute then back up to 200.
I'm at lose to if I should do a oil cooler or if maybe something happen in the motor when I got in the wreck and now it's fine.


I'd appreciate some ideas on what I should do.

It could be a bad sensor, how badly damaged was the front of the truck?

The front of my truck wasn't damaged at all as I have a full ranch hand bumper.

Before you rip into it, ensure your sensors and wires are good.

I put on a coolant filter yesterday and drove around for awhile with the edge and my temps never got more than 10 different and that was only for a few seconds. Cruising 75, wot, it ran good. I had to give my buddy back his insight but I think I may hold off. Thinkin maybe the wreck could have stuck the thermostat or something but seems good now
