It seems that the LMM is more sensitive than others.

Maybe I misspoke - my LMM runs HOT towing, although not to the point of setting a code or boiling over. With 20k miles on the truck, the coolant temp will stay between 220 and 240 for most any trip when towing the fifth wheel, unless I am going downhill for an extended period. As the cooling system gets some age on it, I would expect it to get worse, not better. Not acceptable to me in a brand new truck.

Oil pressure will barely keep 32 psi running uphill at 2500-3000 rpm. Maybe that's OK per the engineers, but it doesn't mean I have to like it.

The LLY would overheat to the point of boilover, and was bad enough that auxilliary radiators were developed by the aftermarket.

yes it is, drives real nice too. I just want to see how its going to hold up after a few get up to the 50K or higher mark. looking at a 6.4 for the short term. Knowing my luck lately that will be worse then my 6.0 but who knows. at least it will have warrenty for a little

Do you still have the DPF or have you tried a $10 blocker plate in the EGR? The EGR coolers add significant heat load to all the modern emissions diesels, it still shouldn't get much over 220 though.
