Default 2008 Exhaust Vibration / Noise

Just bought a 2008 Ford Ranger XLT, 4 cyl. engine, automatic transmission, with 12K miles on it. Truck is pristine but it has a vibrating noise when idle that drives you crazy.

1) When I start cold the engine revolutions go up to over 2000 rpm. Ford dealer says that is normal. Other new Rangers in the lot do not do it!

2) When idle, like when stopping at a traffic light, the exhaust noise and vibration is so loud that you cannot open the windows. You fill that your ear drums will vibrate out of your head. There is too a slight noise like if intake valves are out of timing. Is this normal? Dealer says it is

Have you applied the emergency brake or had some one sit in it while you lay under the truck to see if the exhaust it loose any where?

Did you buy this truck new or used?

Are you saying that your revs don't come back down?

When it's cold, mine will rev high at idle, too. But after a minute, it's drops down to normal.
