Am I just over worries about my truck?

Got the thing six months ago, deleted dpf and egr, got air intake, and installed mini max about a week ago. I drain the water seperator monthly and use diesel clean. I also put elc coolant in when I did egr delete, and I've been checking my coolant level daily bc I'm worried about coolant leak but no signs yet. Coolant just looks like its real low in the container, but it stays that low. Oil change every 5k and fuel filters every 10k. Should I be ok? Or am I too worried?

Just keep an eye on it. These trucks have lot of coolant in them and the level will normally vary.

When your truck is warmed up and coolant temp is around 180-190 where is the coolant at on the bottle?

well,if you think it has dropped since you put in the elc.....that might just be due to air purging out..... i use a felt marker for where the coolant sits,so if it drops you can start looking.how much effort did you put in changing to elc...did you do the chemical flush and the whole nine yards?
