need to get a scanner on it and look for codes , also need to read data with a scanner and see what it doesnt have , rpm signal, oil pressure , things like that , just because you see some smoke and smell fuel doesnt mean it has fuel pressure either

quick update i tested both batteries and one failed so i went and got 2 new ones from advance auto put em in truck cranks over much better but still wont start i also pulled the fuel filter and it is full of fuel looks clean and filter does not appear to be clogged. i would put it on a scanner but i dont have one i think it might be the glow plug relay it was really hot the other day when i had the same problem the night before and now it is cold to the touch does not warm up at all

You don't need glowplugs to start it. I think.
