How long should you warm up 1980 truck engine?

When you use petroleum based lubricants and the weather's temperature is below freezing, it could take a while. Using synthetic in the engine and transmission would reduce this significantly as well as reducing the fuel to do it. Sixty percent of the wear in an engine is caused in the first minute and a half, meaning that synthetic engine oil would reduce this wear to a degree that it's life would extended. In other words, operation and maintenance is reduced with synthetic lubricants. Equipment owners who use synthetic hydraulic oils love it because they experience reduced maintenance, start-up time and operation expenses.

Would using water instead of coolant cause jeep cherokee's engine to over heat?

No, it would not. Because the system is pressurized, the water would not evaporate as readily, and, even if it did, there is nowhere for it to escape to. However, using water instead of coolant is not recommended because in coolants there are many additives for things like anti-rust, anti-corrosion, and lubricants for the water pump and seals. Using the antifreeze raises the temperature at which the mixture would boil, reducing the chance of a boil over especially in warm climates.
