Default 2003 Dodge Ram Q

When i bought my truck when it starts up it usually takes about 1-2 seconds to get started. Now its taking more like 3-4 seconds to start. I am only concerned because its trying and it takes a little longer to start.

Is there a crankshaft or camshaft position sensor that I could look at replacing or does anyone know what I could look into to possible remedy this issue?

TIA
Matt

I know that this should be pretty obvious, but my first step would be a tune up...

plugs, wires, ignition type stuff (cap and rotor), replace any vacuum lines that are cracked or worn, check hoses etc.....
