Default won't start when cold

I bought this truck off ebay. First time that it wouldnt start in the cold i said must like it in the warmer climate so i took it to Hawaii. Spent about 6 months there and the wife said I have had enough of this place, lets go home so now that were home back to not starting when it is cold. I plugged it in this mornin and started after about 30 min. From what i have read on the net could be alot of things but i am not going to just throw money at it. I will be doing the work myself. I have read that there is a plug that you can get to cap off one line at a time to trace for a bad injector. That is the way i am leaning. Because it does idle rough after it does start. But am also going to look at filter and lift pump last. Wish i could afford one of those fuel systems like FASS or one like it but trip to Hawaii took its toll if you know what i mean. thx in advance for any help
by the way it is a 3500 ram cummins

Tried the diesel additives for cold weather? May it just be a problem with the paraffin?
