It could be the starter

It isn't the starter. It is spinning the engine, but acts like it is not getting the gas. I have already changed the fuel filter.

sound like your fuel pump is losing its pressure when truck is not running, that's why it has a long crank time has to build up pressure again, only fix is to replaced fuel pump
