Blowing white smoke 2003 F250 PSD

Sorry for a lengthy post. Need some help I'm still new to working on my truck myself so forgive the ignorance. Here is what I've got. I have a 2003 F250 SD w/ 7.3L PSD 268K miles. Took good care of the truck. About 4 days ago the truck started blowing white smoke real bad on start up (its 70+ * in the AM here in Tulsa) and you can smell the fuel very well. Once you get in and drive it it seems to do fine but you can tell its not running exactly right, but it doesn't blow the white smoke while driving and when its warm and you are at idle the smoking is not as bad or the fuel smell but its still there. To add last year in March went on a trip and the truck died took it to a Ford dealer had to was 3 states out and they replaced all the fuel injectors as they said they were bad w/ rebuilt ones at the tune of $360.00 a piece + labor a $4000.00 bill, what could I do was stranded. ANyway so I had new injectors put it, I also recently had Ford change glow plugs and wiring harness, and I changed the GPR. 4 mtgs ago Ford changed the IPR and BPV. I am being led to believe from what I've been reading that one of the Fuel Injectors has trash in it causing fuel to dump too much or the orings are bad. Need some good solid advice to help get this figured out and I don't want to let it linger and cause damage if it is bad orings or stuck open injector. Thanks for the help guys.

Are you feeling a hesitation? Have a cylinder contribution test done. You could possibly have cylinder that is low on compression and isn't burning the fuel entirely. The cylinder contrib will point the hole out. Keep me updated
