Unhappy Rod knock?

I hope its not what the title says but I have a problem. When the truck is warm it has a fairly loud ticking noise in the bottom end and increase repetition with engine speed. the first time it did it it was so loud you couldn't even hear the truck running and now seems to have quieted some. Any opinions? I'm afraid to drive it and called my dealer and they said it most likely blown up and have no explanation why. the truck has been babied since new and has hauled one heavy load since I bought it. They also said if it requires an engine they will not replace it and claims ford said they are to overhaul it I'm at a loss guys this is sickening. The truck has 16k miles on it

Took it to the guys at husker diesel and they are taking the egr apart to clean it to get the codes to go away. I knew it was a mistake doing a dpf delete on a brand new truck No one will warranty it I'm afraid. Returned it back to stock and been driving that way for 400 miles now and the noise is still there but not as prominent

...my thoughts? If it is something serious you want the problem now. I would get a second opinion from a second dealer, if they say 'it ain't broke, we have nothing to fix', I would cease to baby it... I would load it up, nail it, stress the drivetrain the way it was engineered to be driven. This is a worktruck powertrain and is engineered to haul equipment in 115 degree temps up an incline...working. If at that point it breaks, call Ford, let them pick it up, and call you when its ready.
My .03 cents, I have pushed this truck harder, longer than any other truck I have owned, it is an awesome powertrain. I would not hesitate to work it...for a .03 cent opinion, you also have the value!!
If Ford says it isn't a problem, I would grab their card, say thank you and roll...working it.

Did you miss the part where he might have voided his warranty why cause more problems that could cost him more money in the long run. To the op why do a dpf delete and keep the egr crap.

Are you saying the warranty has been voided because of your DPF Delete?

Yes warranty is void. sorry it took so long to update been busy in the field. Truck is still in the shop and their working on it as we speak. I didn't want to do the egr delete for this reason: its just more crap to have to reinstall when a problem arises. Knock has calmed down some but is still there. Forgot how big of a pooch this thing was stock lol

Update: Truck is now Ford as of yesterday. They called this morning and said the entire egr system grenaded. They are still trying to find all the pieces from the cooler and will have me a new system by tomorrow morning and should have me running again by the end of the week.
