I had the same issue again on saturday, my truck would not start again. I did get it started on sunday and the exhaust smelled like the fuel was really rich. It could be possible that I have a bad sensor and I will know more tomorrow when I get my truck inspected. I will let you guys know.

I just got home from my mechanics garage. I told told him about the problem I had twice when the weather was 20 degrees and he could not find anything wrong. No codes, plugs are in great shape, he looked at my shorty wires and said there is nothing wrong with them and they would not be the issue with starting problem. He was hoping to find a code but he couldn't. He said it could be possible the colder the weather is probably playing with either the fuel pump or a fuel sensor, but without any codes he couldn't narrow it down anymore then that. The temp in my area has been above 25 the passed 2 days and I did not have any issues, we'll see tomorrow morning when the outside temp is supposed to be down or below 20 degrees. I was hoping to have more of an answer for you guys but that is all I got.

Cause your primary plugs are fired by the coil directly and does the combustion then the secondary would normally fire after to "clean" up whatever unburned fuel would be left. So I don't see full length wires being of any benefit. Or at least thats the way I understand it.
This is a common misunderstanding.....both plugs fire under compression, one from coil above cylinder and one from coil on opposite bank.....here is an earlier post describing the actual coil/plug firing sequence....
