Sounds pretty normal too me, mine is loud as heck when I started her up leaving work yesterday (~+5F). Also these trucks are known to hold back on power till the engine and trans temps come up. If you have to drive it cold like that just take it easy on her for a few miles till things warm up then hammer down.
