I have a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 as well. My truck does this from time to time. Whether I am putting it in reverse or drive from the park position. When it does do it, it makes a type of griding noise, sometimes jerking into the gear I have chosen and sometimes not. I haven't had any problems with my tranny as far as shifting goes while driving it. It shifts very smoothly but from time to time while driving it, it will kind of I guess what you could say, make a low roaring noise like its not happy with the gear it is in, and if I give it a little more gas it will kick into a higher gear and stop the sound. I have checked the transfer case and everything appears fine. To answer your question, I honestly don't know if it is a big problem or not a problem at all. My truck does it and it drives fine, I have had it checked and checked it out myself as well, and no problems have occured. Hope this helps.
