I see that you had the injectors replaced 20,000 miles ago. I would still check the oil to make sure it is not overfull. The new injectors could be bad. If the oil level is not overfull then get a paper towel and touch the dip stick tip on the paper towel while oil is on the dip stick. If it's only oil it will not spread. If it has diesel in the oil the oil with spread. If this test doesn't show the injectors to be bad then you have three other possibilities. The FICM (fuel injection control module), the fuel pressure regulator, or the injection pump. It's hard to pinpoint what the problem is without running more tests and the only way to run those tests is with the computer the dealership has. Just so you know your injectors are still under warranty until 100,000 miles. Most likely you will have to take it to the dealership to get you truck fixed. I hope this helps you some.

SOURCE: fuel filter on a 6.2 diesel
You need to install an electric fuel pump to lift the fuel from the tank to the mechanical pump. You can turn off the electric pump after starting or use it when bleeding the lines after changing the fuel filter. You can start the truck after a few minutes instead of a few days. I know from experience and fought that problem for years.

change fuel filler as normal then connect fuel feed from tank connect injectors leak off to fuel fillter leaving the rail flow pipe off this is the midddle one with the arrow pointing out
connect a piace of clear plastic pipe to this connection and slowly suck the fuel through the filtter and half way up pipe you can see this happen stop sucking the fuel will flow back to fillter take the pipe you were sucking through off and connect the feed to rail pipe turn on and crank engine she will start immediately
