Ram15002ndgen will become famous soon enough

If it's only a problem when cold then I would think it's your IAC sensor on the back part of the throttle body. That gets gunked up and makes for rough cold starts. That can be taken off and cleaned. Other than that a dirty throttle body or sticking throttle positioning sensor. You can do a quicky job just running some cleaner through the throttle body while it's running, but if it's really bad you will have to take it off and clean it out thoroughly.
