Default Tranny...Cold Start?!

Everytime I start my truck the RPMS start at about 1300. You gotta sit there for 2min till they drop. If I switch into gear (lets just say rear) without waiting you'll here a grind. A friend of mine with an 05 hemi told me it just sounds like the electronic shifting. I just want to make sure I'm not going to harm my tranny. I usually wait till it drops till 1k or below. I could be fresh off the highway warmed up and all, if I turn the truck off and on again it does this. What are your thoughts?

I dont know if you have the same problem I am or what but when I start my '07, every once in a while when I try to put it in gear it will "half way" go in and barely move, as if i have the clutch half way engaged. It is an automatic but that is just the best way of explaining it.

Sounds like a different problem. Mine is more of an annoyance then anything. Goes in gear just fine just gotta wait till the rpms drop to 1k.
