Truck takes 3-4 cranks to get started in the mornings. I have replaced the CPS and the gp relay is good what else should i check?

Get your batteries tested. They need alot of CCA to turn em over fast enough to build oil pressure. Check your cables also. I went through the same thing as you. Ended up been a week starter. Now the old trucks startes right up with out any hard cranking. It still blows some white smoke for a few minutes but soon stops.

It could also be the injectors or the piston rings. My 97 stroker had the same issues. If some of the piston rings are bad then that means you wont acheive enough compression to fully combust the atomized fuel, hence the white smoke.
