Default Grinding noise when accelerating from stop.

Hello,
I'm new to these forums. I've recently purchased an 05 1500 hemi. I just noticed that when i'm accelerating from stop, there's a grinding noise under the truck for about 2 seconds and once i'm up past 20mph the noise goes away.
Does this sound familiar to anyone?
Thanks in advance.
-j

have you check the condition of the rotors or rear drums if aplicable,

grinding ? can u get it to grind in reverse, does it chatter wen it grinds,
does it grind all the time,

grinding ? as in tearing metal or like as in an aluminum can ripping open ,

wut about turning does it click wen u accelerate ?

you might be on to something with the rotors. The noise is like metal rubbing against each other. it doesn't chatter. just rubs for like 2 seconds and the truck is going, the noise goes away. only happens in drive from stop. i accelerate, makes the rubbing noise for 2 seconds, and it goes away. I hope it's as simple as warped rotors or worn pads and not a problem with something major like the transmission.
thanks again for the insight.
