4.0 Liter 6 or 5.0 Liter V8 engine?\015\012
\015\012If it's the org. engine it will has over 150,000 miles on it.\015\012
\015\012It's normal to has the valve seal/oil seal on the head to leak oil into the cyclinder.\015\012
\015\012The smoke you see is the motor oil drop from the seals. It land on the top of the cyclinders and it create black smoke at start up.\015\012
\015\012The inexpensive fix is to start using high mileage oil with seal conditioner. This will help soften the rubber seals and help reduce internal oil leak.\015\012
\015\012The correct fix is to wait until it's time for a head gasket replacement and let the professional CRC/service the head.\015\012
\015\012Complete head service is the only method to stop this internal oil drip problem.\015\012

Sounds like valve stem seals...if it is white smoke that is antifreeze , blue smoke is oil....hope that helps
