First, I am not a fan of Optima batteries. They make a good product, but they are overpriced. However, that aside, most places that stock them, don't sell a lot. What was the date code they were manufactured. You may not have put "new" batteries in your truck at all.
Second: what weight oil (and type) are you running? Heavier weight oils are molasses under about 3o degrees and you need thin oil running through the injectors for a good start.
