White smoke on startup is pretty normal. Once it warms up, does it go away? If so, then that is pretty normal.
I would check your glow plug system. Make sure all the connections are clean and solid between the relay and batt. as well as the two smaller wires. Is your voltage dropping when you first turn it on? Then before cranking just watch the voltage and do not crank it until you see it move back up (could take up to two minutes). You could check your connections at the UVCH. Lots of things to check on. Sounds like a glow plug problem if the smoke goes away once it is warmed up. You could try and plug your truck in this evening and in the morning when you start it and it doesn't smoke. It is definitely your glow plug system.
