Will crank but dies after 2-4 sec. It is not throwing any codes. Please some good info. I cant keep throwing money at this truck. Very frustrated

How many miles are on it? How does it run when it starts, smooth or rough?

190k. Rough loping idle for about 3 sec then smooths out. It has a miss but after 5 mins the miss is gone and runs fine. It is hard to start even after it warms up. I can drive it to town, about 15 mins. Get back in to start and i may have to try and crank 2-3 times before it starts

Any smoke on start up? If so what color?
Is the cranking sluggish?
Does it appear to be harder to start warm than cold?

After repeated cranks, white smoke comes out. I keep batteries on a tender so no worries there. Cold starting is worse than warm. Below that 50 it doesnt want to start at all. And its not throwing any codes

Do you have access to a scantool/AutoEngenuity? You should run a contribution test with the truck running to see if you have some weak injectors.

Having a few weak injectors will cause difficult starting/no start, worsened by lower temperatures, and will usually not throw any codes.

My truck used to have 2 shoddy injectors and it would not want to start at all in warm or cold weather. Even when I plugged it in it still started rough.

Mine was the same. Before injectors the whole GP system was new and wouldnt start at 40*. After I replaced the injectors I never plug it in, unless it is going to be past -15*

Question

I agree with the opinions above, but how is working your starter? This beasts needs some RPM to start, even with a good batteries. Just a guess.
