Warm up

Just got my new 6.7 and love it. Anyhow i drive about 10 miles to work and 10 miles home everyday.
How long do you let your truck warm up in the winter around 15 outside temp?
How long in the summer with a morning temp of 50?

Iv been doing about 10 minutes.

I usually let it run for maybe 5 minutes. I start it just before I put on my shoes to head out when it's cold (-15 to -25C ) in the summer I just get in and go. Along as the oil has cycled a bit before you drive hard in the cold you are fine.
