I think it has upgraded brakes too. When I rotated my tires I saw I have twin piston front calipers. Not sure if that's standard on a sport.

Look like twins on the front of mine too. Pretty sure the brakes aren't any different.

I don't think this is correct, even though it has a different suspension. My buddy's 2011 RT sat higher than my 2010 SLT when we were both stock. We measured, he was like 1" taller.

The R/T is taller because of the 22" rims

Brakes are the same.

I don't think so on the ride height, just because it has larger wheels doesn't mean the diameter of the tires is larger. I think the overall diameter is the same. Anyone with an RT want to check the diameter? Or just tell me the tire size and I'll compare?

What makes an R/T an R/T? Well you got all the technical stuff thats been listed here already but the main difference, the thing that separates the R/T from all the other RAM's out there is fact that there is a different hot chick in the passenger seat every weekend who wants a ride in a very badass truck and then wants to ride something else....

lmao


And yes diameter of the tires is the same as any other ram. I checked this when I did an alignment on my truck. I didn't want to put the alignment heads on my rims so I borrowed a 2009 ram off the used car lot where I work which had 17" rims on it and they measured out to be the same exact diameter.

My rt looking sexy with 17's:
