During am when outside temp is cold the truck cranks but will hesitate during initial start as if the starter is binding (grind), when attempting to start a second time it will start but cranks longer before start up?

Cold weather-Okay you need to check the battery cold cranking amps could be low for your electrical system.

And also have the coolant temperature sensor check this one tells the computer to dump fuel at it, during initial cold starts-like a carbuerator choke till the engine comes up to its operating temperature then the oxygen sensor/s will take over the air/fuel mixture telling the computer whether it needs fuel or not.
