Oil temp of 260 is acceptable....especially up a grade.
Sustained periods of 275 or higher towing on a flat surface would be cause for concern.
I averaged 240 while towing #10K-#12K with my 5.7...

Coolant smell

I have a 2014 2500 with the 6.4. For the last 5000 miles I have noticed a coolant smell when walking around the front of the truck after a decent-length drive.

Axle wrap, wheel hop and axle hop are all essentially the same thing.
It's like saying the sky is not blue it's azure.

Regardless, since traction bars cannot be used with...

Those 2 brackets don't appear to connect to anything are intended as a plow mount, yes.

Can you have the winch and plow installed at the same time?
Sorry, I do not know.

This is most likely intended to prevent axle wrap...similar to the Fox body Mustang quad shock setup.
Kinda like what traction bars do on high horsepower leaf spring cars.

On any vehicle I own with traction control I use a relay (sometimes delayed) to automatically turn off the traction control a couple seconds after motor start.
