You probably have lower gearing so 70mph probably has the rpms higher than most single rear wheel pickups. One thing that CAN help reduce egts but not a huge decrease is the wicked wheel 2 turbo wheel.
Did you go with a straight pipe exhaust? I only saw about 100 degrees egt decrease when removing the cat and muffler on previous diesels.
A hydra chip will help but again its a combination of things that will make the biggest difference. You can try the daily driver tune for your trucks pcm code.
The hydra chip comes with an online server link to tons of tunes for your trucks specific ecm code so you could try the various daily/performance tunes and see which ones net you the lowest egts. A tow tune MAY work better because it will try to keep the truck at higher rpms more.
