    Mine is right at 1000 with the heater on no AC so I guess in normal

    When my Truck is in Park idle speed would be at 1100 with AC on, but When I set my truck to drive the idle speed drops to 500RPM. Is 500RPM good? Even after its warmed up, idle speed would still be at around 500 to 600RPM with AC on. But theres no stall.

    Once warm, 800-850 should be what you see in any condition.

    Too many Hop Nosh's down to do that legally so living vicariously through TW is next best.

    Welcome to TW!

    I idle around 800ish without A/C on. Around a 1,000 with A/C on.

    Just FYI since we are on the subject of idling. If you ever disconnect your battery for anything for more than a couple of minutes it will reset the ECU and therefore cause the truck to idle lower than mentioned above. This is normal and idle will return to normal after driving for a while as the ECU re-learns.
