It has to do with the higher stall torque converter they put into the RT. That truck is based for performance not heavy duty work.

Default Welcome to the Z. For hauling or towing heavy loads...

Hi Richard,

Welcome to the Z. Lots of great info and people here.

If you haul or tow heavy loads, we offer TotalLoadControl™ - the go-to solution for 4th Gen RAM - 9" Goodyear air bags that add over 5,000 pounds of lift (largest on any 1/2-ton truck). No one else can offer TLC because its patented. You'll have an air suspension for about 1/3 the price of the 2013 factory option.

TLC™ will keep your truck level with any load or tow and improve steering, handling, braking and ride and make it faster off the line by eliminating hesitation. (Of course, never exceed GVWR/GCWR!).

TLC's air bags work great in cold weather too (down to -55F).

We introduced TLC on the Z and have many satisfied Z customers.

Happy to answer any questions about TLC.

See you around the Z.

John
