Default soft shift 1-2?

Hi All, I recently bought a 2012 1500 4x4, with the 4.7 and 6 speed.
I seem to have an unusually soft shift from 1st to 2nd.
To the point where you actually go forward in the seat while the truck is making the shift.
Has anyone else experienced this? Prior to buying this truck I rented a 2013 with the same engine for a ~500 mile vacation trip, and it seemed much....crisper and peppy-er. That rental had roughly the same mileage that my truck has now.
I haven't disco'd the battery cable to reset the computer yet, but that will likely be next. I just haven't wanted to reset my radio presets. Lol.
