Be more specific about what's going on with your truck and I can help you further. Do you have a block heater?

I don't think the cummins ever had glow plugs.

I would look at electrical stuff. Start with the battery

how cold are you talking? without the block heater being plugged in in very cold temps, cummins motors will be hard to start.
