Your truck really does not need a warm up before driving. However, if by warm up you mean taking it easy while driving, I definitley agree w/ 5-10 minutes. However, 5-10 minutes idling can cause soot build up. Ford TSBs address excessive idling as a cause of carbon in the turbo and other problems (EGR, etc).
I changed my EGR valve out at 30k on my own dime - just an expensive experiment. Glad I did - it was VERY dirty - lots of sticky carbon. Cleaned the intake as best I could and rerouted the ccv. At the very least, I think it is good practice to pull the EGR valve and inspect it. They also updated the EGR valve in 2007 (IIRC).
All 6.0L's have a factory 5yr / 100k ENGINE warranty. It is NOT a powertrain warranty.
