Default 2000 4.0 Slow computer take over at start?

Hi all. My 2000 Ranger 4.0, 128K has a slow start problem ? When cold (Iowa 10,20 degrees out) it will start, but slow idle and seems to be not fully started?. After 1 second it seems to get all computer info ( my way of explaining what it is like) ? and idle comes up and all is fine. It seems like a choke problem if it was an older carburated truck if that makes sense. The truck will run great all day and start just fine. This morning it will not start. Cranks ok, tries to start, but not quite. I replaced spark plugs and wires a few months ago. Any help appreciated. Jerry
