ohm out your glows and test your relay (sticky up top) is where i would start. and does your starter seem to spin reasonably fast? whats your outdoor ambient temp when you start?

Glow plug system first, maybe fuel filter next start with the simple stuff first anyway. at that mileage your truck is just getting broke in If its cold they will smoke some on startup but if it is starting harder than normal there must be something wrong(not mileage). You probly wont have to go this far but my dad had to replace his valve cover gaskets along with his glowplugs once on his '95, the plugs were almost burnt off. something to look at anyway while your in there
