More likely than not your EGR cooler has failed. You need to get this handled sooner than later, as it is possible for coolant to also enter a cylinder. I would suggest a Bulletproof Diesel EGR cooler.

Also, recognize that most EGR coolers fail because the oil cooler plugs first, and then starves the EGR cooler for coolant.

You need to get a monitor on your truck ASAP so you can view the vitals. In particular, start with the Engine Coolant Temp (ECT) versus the Engine Oil Temp (EOT).

+1 what he said ^ Grab a Edge Insight CT or CTS tuner immediately. Plenty of info/articles on here about monitoring the 6.0 and common failures. #1 thing to do right now is get a tuner and READ. Good luck with the new rig. Heres some vital info:
