Welcome! Enjoy the new Ram!

There are a ton of brilliant people and technicians here (myself included, technician anyway) and we will help in any way we can. I am a soldier and mechanic and a few other members are mechanics by trade. Everyone has something to offer at the Z. Feel free to send me a message with any questions you may have. Any info you need, if we don’t know it, someone can find it for you.

Since you drive a 2009+(4th gen) RAM, be sure to take a look at Total Load Control™ Air Suspensions - especially if you haul/tow alot of gear or toys.

I hope you don't mind if I tell you how I learned about TLC and why I'm their Z rep.

For the past 8 years, I have been stationed in every environment imaginable, from the snow and colds of Northern NY, to the constant drizzle of rain in Seattle, to the front lines of the wars in Iraq (twice) and Afghanistan (once), all as a Heavy Equipment/Route Clearance Mechanic. Currently I'm stationed at Ft. Lewis near Seattle and still turning wrenches for Uncle Sam.

I first read about TLC™ soon after they became a sponsor on the Z. When I saw the design with 9" air springs, I knew the system was more powerful than any on the market. I recognized the patented design was the best solution for hauling or towing heavy loads with the RAM coil springs (we use air bags similar to TLC's on large rigs in the Army).

Anyway, I got back a couple months ago and was even more impressed when I finally got to drive my 09 with TLC. Not only did it level my truck with heavy loads (and only 20-30 psi), but TLC made my truck handle more like a sports car and accelerate with ease. I couldn't believe that TLC by itself lowered my unladen 0-60 time by 1 second (because it shifts the weight forward so there's no hesitation).

The steering and handling is tighter and my mileage MPG increased a bit (again because easier off the line; about 1 MPG better).

In the meantime, I sold the '09 and got a like-new 2011 and easily removed and reinstalled TLC. I just got back from a month-long cross-country trip, towing 7,000lbs of boat for much of it, with a smile on my face.

I have TLC's air kit with a Viair compressor and its easy to air up the bags in a few seconds when I want to. You can also use wireless or manual air.

If you’re wondering, TLC doesn’t interfere with the RAM smooth factory ride. Coils are great for ride but not heavy loads. TLC is the suspension upgrade that adds the strength to keep the truck level with every load and improves the truck’s steering, handling, braking, ride, acceleration & mpg!

I wouldn't drive my truck without TLC. Its really the suspension that should come from RAM.

That's why I'm proud to be TLC's rep.

TLC is affordably priced and shipping is FREE for RAM 1500 in the USA and only $50 to Canada!

Feel free to send me an email at ArmyofOne2006@remove_this_part.gmail.com so we can discuss things further.

Looking forward to pics of your rig and seeing you active in the community.

-Josh

Welcome to the forum Tony,
This forum is full of great looking trucks; packed with great mod ideas and there are loads of knowledgeable and experienced people here.

If you ask your question in the 'Help Zone' there is a better chance of getting a response from one of the techy types as they seldom frequent the welcome section. The Help Zone is about 1/2 way down the main page that you can click on the banner on top of every page to get to.

AND - We all like pix! Got any to share?

Enjoy the Z!
