Best thing is to get the truck scanned for any DTC, Auto Zone scans for free and can help you pin point the cause of your miss fire. It could be running lean due to dirty injectors, so injector cleaner in the gas tank may help after a few days of running the cleaner through the system. It may just be time for a tune up, spark plugs and wire change ect. Could even be a dirty Air mass flow sensor that could be causing the miss fire. 
Have it scanned to save you some time and money and most garage now will scan for around $15.00 now. Always call around for the best price when getting you car or truck scanned, most places have the scanner and would want you business if you decide to have them work on it.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Hard start and rough idle.


Sounds like it's time for a tune up of the ignition system. That would be easiest. If not, have a mechanic check your cylinder compression.

I have experienced this problem on similar vehicles. You should try and replace the coolant temp sensor. If it is not reading the correct temp to the ecm, it will not get the right fuel map. Also, the cts will not always throw a code.
