Need help with a 5.9 Gasser!

Ok well it's the girls truck (2002 Ram Automatic 70,xxx) and I can't seem to figure out whats going on with it. It started about a month ago, when you start the truck when it's cold it has a really rough idle and if you try and drive it cold, it will studder really bad as if it's "loading up" and almost stall out. However when it gets warm it will run ok. With the exception of it drinking gas. Which most gas 5.9's do anyway. About 2 months ago I changed the cap, rotor and wires, I also replaced the air filter. There isn't a OBD 2 code that comes up or anything. What could this be? Plugs, maybe the EGR valve? I'm lost. Thanks for any help fella's
