Is it cold there?

If it's just idling ratty on cold starts, you probably have a couple injectors with scored/sticking spool valves.

If it's running ratty while driving, I'd suspect you probably have a leaking ICP sensor, if it's an early build truck (ICP under turbo). See if it's leaking oil.

Could also be a FICM, fuel pressure, HP oil system concern, oil quality concern....the list goes on and on.
