Garret, what weight oil are you using? Mine did similar when some one put wrong weight oil in it.

Change oil & filter add 1 qt of lucas engine oil treatment in place of a qt of oil. It is a lifter pecking.

I have a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 with Hemi and mine does the same thing. I took it to the dealership and they checked everything out and said thatthis motor takes a minute to get everything lubricated when you start it and there is nothing that i could do to stop it...they said the oil has to work its way through the motor.
