Pisses me off that I bought the truck new and almost have it paid for and something simple like this could ruin all my hard work

Uhhhhh yeah, that is definitely not a good thing.

I'm sure i'll still need injectors eventually but for now it'll be good, at least after I get the oil cooler and stuff done this weekend.
Always a possibility.
I had a sticking no. 3 injector and had to plug the tuck in for awhile, even when it was warm out, just to get it o start decently. It would take a little while to warm up enough to drive. I used some rev-x a little over a month ago, and the truck starts great now. I have even had it sitting for a day or more in single digit temps, unplugged, and it will crank right up.
The best thing to do, in my opinion, is to replace both fuel filters, check your FICM voltage, and then go from there. It's too easy to test the FICM and at least eliminate it as the problem.
