There was a TSB released back in September of 2007 pertaining specifically to 2006 and 2007 model year F-Series applications. The article number is 07-18-04 intended specifically to address P0470 set during ambient temperatures in the minus digits. The updated calibration strategy at the time would ignore EBP input for a few seconds upon cold startup to melt any ice buildup on the sensor. Now, this is an old update obviously. Since then there have been further updated calibrations released, so if yours is at the latest level and/or yours is not an '06/'07 model year, this obviously wouldn't apply.
In answer to the poster inquiring about its location, on '03 to early '05 model years, the sensor is threaded into a bracket atop the thermostat, directly beside the upper rad hose. On late '05 to '07 model years, the sensor is threaded directly to the EBP tube that is secured to the front FICM mounting bracket, under the coolant degas bottle.
