its kind of like motors that have spent their life in cold climate, start better in cold compared to motors from florida that come to a cold climate...they dont start as good
the reason most of the southern trucks wont start up here is that some have the heating grid disabled... as it doesnt need it down there, so its turned off.... or they are not equiped with the block heater, so obviously it cant be plugged in over night, and will give you hard start issues.
as far as the "ether baby" deal, the only thing I can think of that would cause a diesel truck to be "dependant" on ether to start, would be that the large amount of heat caused by the ether damages the heating grid or the glow plugs, and causes them to not work correctly.
