Loaded with fuel and gear, my boat weighs 7,350 give or take (500lbs of fuel-84 gallons-then another 500 of gear or so). I would not DREAM of even attempting it without Total Load Control™ Air Suspension Systems,
and a brake upgrade from Clark at AutoAnything. TLC's patented system solves the RAM 1500 coil spring problem – smooth everyday ride can’t handle heavy loads or towing. TLC adds 5,000+ pounds of lift so your truck will always be level - and TLC™ improves steering, handling and braking too. TLC™ is a revolutionary patented air suspension that operates independent of the factory suspension and doesn’t interfere with the smooth factory ride. TLC uses 9" Goodyear® air springs - the largest on any full-size truck. But, if you want, a “sportier” feel, TLC can give it to you. TLC's air springs have at least 5 times the power of the “inside the coil air springs" that others offer 4th Gen RAM 1500 owners. TLC has a new model for RAM 2500 and 3500 trucks (2002-2012). This unit is super tough with 1/4" steel platforms that will level the heaviest loads, trailers and boats. Some competitors use 6" air springs. TLC's 9" air springs have at least 3 times the air volume and level heavy loads with only 20-30 psi. I've been a mechanic for about a decade now and I know about other air bag and bumper systems. There is no comparison to TLC. Until you get TLC, you've never experienced the full power of air bags or had Total Load Control.
Of course, TLC cannot increase GVWR or GCWR so please do not exceed the manufacturer's recommendation. All TLC systems are easy to install; fit single or dual exhaust and require no modifications. You can order with or without a quality Viair air compressor and gauge/switch panel (no air tank required for the TLC system). Custom production available for lifted trucks! Shipping for the 1500 unit is always free in the continental US, $40 to Canada, and $100 internationally. Shipping for the DGHD-2535 unit is based on your location because it’s a much heavier, larger unit (we currently ship from Visalia, CA). We have a limited time coupon good for $50 off your purchase until June 15. Please enter code: RAM50OFF at checkout.
Your Ram + TLC = Match made in heaven.
