There is no difference between the delete kits. They all do the same thing, which is redirect the coolant flow coming out of the oil cooler to the same spot that the egr cooler did, as well as an up-pipe to replace the existing one on your truck now (to get rid of the exhaust connection).
I used the cheap (dicad solutions) kit off fleabay and have had 0 issues.
Here is something to consider, you won't get lower exhaust temps, you will not realize an appreciable horsepower gain, nor will you get better fuel mileage.
Those are all bogus claims made by manufacturers and sellers of egr delete kits. If they tell you different, they are either using hyped up results or straight out lying to you. To a manufacturer or seller of a kit that disagrees with me......prove it.

The stock oil cooler isn't a exactly a perfect part, but it isn't exactly a piece of garbage either. You have two options.
Option one: Replace your existing stock oil cooler with another stock oil cooler. Tousley Ford has them for 213.84 <CLICK HERE>.
Option two: If you NEVER EVER want to worry about your oil cooler ever again, go with the bulletproof diesel oil cooling system. If you live in a climate that gets snow in the winter, you will need to add the cold weather package to it. Kits for your year truck are linked below.

Most importantly, previous to digging in to do an oil cooler, flush your cooling system thoroughly. There is a link in my signature line that will outline that procedure, or do a search for a member by the name of 'PGreenSVT' and use the link in his signature line. The importance of a clean cooling system previous to the repair can not be stressed enough.
You should consider replacing the coolant in your cooling system to an CAT EC-1 rated ELC coolant as well. You can get this type of coolant at an International truck dealership or at your local NAPA store. The international dealer sells the Fleetrite coolant, NAPA sells a Zerex ELC product. The important part is that the coolant meets the CAT EC-1 rating and that you purchase it in concentrated form (you will need 4 gallons).

DO NOT, under any circumstances purchase the IPR oil cooler.
Think about what they claim and how what they have done will effect your oil cooling capacity.
The size of the oil cooler is set by the size of the cavity in the engine. You can't make it bigger or wider.
To create the "high flow," IPR removed oil and coolant passages in the oil cooler. What are the effects of this? Hotter oil. If you tow anything you will have higher oil temps. Tow heavy and those temps may actually cause your truck to defuel in an attempt at saving itself (occurs at 253F oil temp). Keep pushing the truck and your oil could get hot enough to melt the plastic standpipe in the oil filter housing. Try getting plastic out of an engine.
IPR Research (what an absolute JOKE of a name by the way) sacrificed efficiency for the sake of flow. That is a dangerous oil cooler. Steer clear.
Also, if you noticed, that oil cooler is "out of stock" and has been that way since January or February of this year. Maybe they figured out how bad of a design they created???

You will note that I gave two options for oil coolers. (Stock, BPD) Those are the only options you have that will keep your engine functioning the way it should. There is no viable third option.

I have the Bulletproof Diesel Oil Cooling System with the Cold Weather Package. It is an awesome addition to this engine. If you pay someone to replace your existing oil cooler/egr cooler, you will spend just a touch more than half of what the system will cost you. Have the oil cooler become plugged again, and you could have had the best solution to this problem already installed, and never have to worry when it will happen again. Fix it once, fix it right, never worry about it again.
The wallet has the final say of course.
