Same exact thing happened to my best friend. The time it's gonna take for it to fire up is gonna get longer and longer or it'll just won't start ever. Starter is going. Order a gear reduction starter from DB electronics.

I just had a similar problem and in my case it was the "Starter Relay" located under the dash.

I thought the two relays were on the pass sider fenderwall and on the starter itself. Or is it diff for the 6.0?

When my starter on my 'ol 7.3 was dying, it started cranking really slow as if the batts were taking a dump. I replaced the batteries and the problem persisted. I bought a starter (rebuilt) off ebay from DB electrical ($95) ... problem solved.

Your problem sounds different from mine, though. If yours "clicks" on the first attempt and cranks after that, I would bet on the relay.
