New 6.0 owner from NH

I just had my fourth Excursion delivered last week. I bought it down south, rust free! This is my first diesel. I know the 6.0 stories, I did my homework. This is a good one. ( I hope ). The truck is amazing clean, loaded, captain's chairs, DVD, etc. It has a Quadzilla tuner and a full SS exhaust ( sounds bad *** ), and a Sinister coolant filter.

My first impressions, I am amazed how fast it feels ( it is on the stock tune ). The trans is amazing.

The truck spent most of it's life in Arkansas. Anyone recognize it? Also I do not know which wheels these are but I love the look! Harley wheels? I added the Powerstoke emblems.

I have been driving it around for about a week with no issues until today. I towed my 24' enclosed car trailer for about an hour. When I got back home I noticed the d-gas bottle had puked coolant. I have a Scan II and have been watching the deltas all week. They were always within 6-9 degrees of each other. I plan on flushing the coolant this week, and replacing the d-gas bottle and cap with a new one. Am I on the right track with that thinking?

Those look like the stock 20" wheels that were offered in '06. I have them on my truck.
