Have you noticed if the truck is any easier to start if parked and left facing down hill? Another common problem is a failed overflow valve that sticks open will allow the injector lines to bleed back into the tank when the truck has been shut off. If you park facing down hill, the engine will be lower than the tank and therefore will not bleed back. If this eliminates your starting issue you have found your culprit. Injector lines and connections at the head and with the crosshead transfer tubes are a good place to start looking for small leaks where maybe fuel may not be escaping, but air is getting back in.
