It is better to run it till at operating temp. However, it wount kill your truck. I would run a synth oil and change it each season or before you hit 4000 miles or so (get your oil checked via blackstone to see what it is doing. That will tell you when to chage it. Some people just stab in the dark about oil changes, lab it!)
Peace of mind for you:
A friend of mine owns a buisness and its 4 miles away from his house. So his commute is 2-5 minutes away depending on lights. He drives his truck to work and back. Most of the days he jumps out of his f350 and gets in the 650 to tow his backhoe etc.
He has ran every PSD doing this. 7.3 up to current 6.7.
He tried to plug it in when he could in the winter. Sometimes didnt even do that. Also, he never waits long to allow it to warm up.
Very low issues. NOTHING with his 7.3, NOTHING with his 6.0. 6.4 a Rad +EGR, and nothing with the 6.7. These are very low amounts of problems!
All of his trucks go from his daily ride to work trucks every few years.
