Tons of white smoke, possible EGR issue

Alright posting this here to get a little insight and hopefully confirm what I think is wrong. I have an 04 KR that I bought in May. 169000 miles, 4" exhaust, AFE CAI. Motor is a later 04 with the ICP on the valve cover. Around a month ago it began randomly idling funny when I would come to a stop sign or light and would chug and blow white smoke for around 10 seconds. After that, everything was normal. Sometimes it would happen twice a day, sometimes it wouldn't do it for a week or so. I began using Diesel Kleen thinking I had and injector sticking and that helped. Now, this afternoon I drove 30 miles from work to my house and parked it for around an hour. Started it up and noticed some light white smoke that has never happened before. After a few minutes the smoke got thicker and then I noticed what I think was dirty black coolant leaking from the exhaust. The smoke did not smell like fuel or oil, and the liquid was watery and a very faint coolant smell. I do have a Scangauge and have been monitoring EOT/ECT for about a month, and have around a 25-35 degree delta, so I know it needs an oil cooler. Right now, from reading on here and other forums, I'm leaning towards oil cooler/egr cooler. Any ideas?

This is after running for maybe 30 seconds


This is after I gave it a little throttle, about 5 seconds worth


And the black coolant? leaking from my exhaust (loose clamp)

Pretty much have it narrowed down to the oil cooler since my deltas were well over 30 degrees, and the egr cooler. Just ordered a delete kit and oil cooler kit. Since I would rather not run the engine, can anyone give me suggestions on flushing the coolant? I have ordered a coolant filter kit as well. Any insight would be appreciated.

it pretty much has to run to circulate flush chemicals, so until you R+R the coolers, all you can do is drain the coolant. and start tearing down the top

I'm bumping this back up to ask for help on a new issue. I got my coolant flushed, egr deleted and oil cooler changed and finished up Saturday. The truck started and I left it idling for around 15-20 minutes until the idle smoothed out after filling up the hpo reservoir and checking for leaks. Went on a test drive and blew an intercooler boot from a loose clamp. Anyway, drove it for 20 minutes or so and ran great. Shut her down and cleaned up the shop and went to leave and no start. I believe I now have a high pressure leak or a bad IPR. According to my SG2 and my uncle's SnapOn solus, ICP is only reading ~250 psi and it will occasionally jump to around 400 and IPR % is at 85%. Unplug the ICP and it will match ICP desired at 985 psi BUT IPR drops to 51%. FICM reads 48.5v and I am getting fuel to the bowl. Any ideas will be appreciated.
