The treatment I used was Howes (spelling may be wrong). The first time It started to gell I put 911 in it, and after that tank was gone I started putting in the howes.

Take that POS out of the truck and throw it in the garbage. small amounts of oil make there way into the air stream and it lands on the MAF sensor. Take the MAF out and cleant it with MAF cleaner.

Thanks,
Why would this all of a sudden do that? And if it was a "air" issue, wouldn't that cause it to smoke more?

Just the opposite. The MAF is covered with junk so it doesn't think there is enough air so it doesn't add lots of fuel no matter how hard you press the go pedal. These trucks are pretty smart. Maby a little too smart.

I'm sure the lack of smoke is just from the cold dense air

If I clean the MAF sensor and it doesn't fix it, is there anything else I could try?

it was actually still smoking alot that morning that it started doing it. I think its prob gonna be the maf sensor. When I got stuck the front end was pretty jammed with snow, probably sucked some stuff up
