Lifted trucks oil temps?

Just curious what others with lifts are getting for oil and coolant temps now that summer is around the corner.

I've been getting 199 coolant and 205 oil. Just trying to get an idea of what is normal. And I'm in central Texas. It's been around 80 here lately in the heat of the day.

Yea your truck is running a bit cooler than mine. I wonder if a coolant filter can cause that.

My lift didn't change my temps and coolant filter didn't change them. In the winter I run 188-190 coolant and 194ish and in the summer I run 194 coolant and 199 oil

Lots of different things factor into those temps. I should mention I have seen the temps your seeing as well. Your delta looks good I really wouldn't worry about it unless it goes higher. Could be the humidity or a head wind could be anything

Well thanks for the piece of mind. I just wasn't crazy about that 205 oil temp... Other than that, around town and down county roads is all good.
