Slow to go after it is started

I have noticed over the last couple of weeks that after I start my truck when it has been sitting over night or longer, that it hardly accelerates. After a couple of seconds (sometimes longer), it eventually gets going like it normally does. Note that it only does it when it has been sitting for a long time.

It feels like it is not getting fuel...but no clue what it really is.

Some go fast parts
Big TV to keep the kids quiet
Upgraded stereo to keep the driver happy

It tows my race car like its not even there

Matt,

Thanks for the suggestions. I will look into them.

For now, I need to let it warm up for about a minute or so before it will go.
