Seriously??

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...

220 is perfectly normal as Ram is starting to bypass the oil cooler until the temp approaches 210 or so.

Seeing 240 while towing is perfectly normal as well.

I averaged 240 degrees pulling #8000 with my 5.7 2500 for a couple years...usually in 4th gear (5 speed). I wouldn't be concerned until it starts to approach 275 degrees for any length of time.
