Your oil will always be hotter when up to op temp and it will always take longer to cool down. Spreads are in good shape

Like I said before it stayed constant at 192-194 even pulling a 22ft 8ft wide enclosed trailer. Thanks for the replies this makes me feel better but I am doing a coolant flush this weekend on another pickup so i'm doing mine as well and spraying out all the coolers

As has been said already, your deltas are fine. Temps are a little higher than Iím use to seeing, but I wouldnít say they are out of line when you consider the fact that the truck weighs over 9,000 lbs and is on 35ís.
You say the temps were lower previously, and in another thread you found that the double stacked tuners were causing some wacky readings. It appears you got that straightened out so my question is this, why did you go to an aluminum radiator? Was there a failure with the stock one? Did the higher temperature issue start before or after you went to the new aluminum radiator? Are your trans temps higher also? I ask this because I have seen multiple instances where an aftermarket radiator, be it an aluminum core/plastic tanks parts store special, or an all aluminum one, doesnít cool as well as an OE radiator.
Iíd be curious to know answers to these questions, but all in all I donít think you need to stress out about the temps you are seeing.

new radiator was put in a month before I bought the pickup its a mishimoto (same thickness as stock I believe) so it was running 192-194 with the new radiator for 4 months. yes it was stacked with the Diablo t1000 hot tune and the SCT3 hot tune but were both out of date and the monitor was giving false reading on the EOT showing 122F. the oil cooler went out so we started gathering parts to basically give it a face lift. new fan clutch (leaking) new tstat/coolant sensor after it started running hotter. Trans temp is the same (had solenoids fail) it stays around 160-175.

I have also read that aluminum radiators do not cool as well and have thought about going back to a stock OEM radiator.

I will measure the width of the radiator this evening I believe its around 2"

we also just did a mishimoto radiator swap on another buddies 6.0 and now his is running 10 degrees hotter.

Thanks for the answers.
OP, I’m not picking on you when I say this, but I don’t understand why so many are people are quick to ditch the factory radiator (or other parts) when they fail after a decade or more in service. There are definitely some factory parts that have short comings (head bolts, cams, egr coolers) but many factory parts are way better than their aftermarket replacements.
Anyway, carry on, and I think you can quite stressing about your temps.
