R/T suspension

So I知 driving through town and I spotted a 2012 Dodge Ram RT, 5.7 , exhaust, catch can , & cold air , not that I知 gonna buy it, but I happened to look underneath at the rear diff setup, and it had a 4 link setup (kind of ) is this stock ? If so why didn稚 the srt apply the same rear setup as such, why a leaf spring setup on a more powerful truck ? https://www.onestopmotorsyakima.com/mobile/vehicles/3c6jd6ct4cg206706-2012-ram-1500-pickup-yakima-wa.htm

Would it be worth to try to do this to our trucks?

Thanks for the picture provided. I am familiar with the SRT-10 suspension and it is always a question why they have used a leaf setup and not a coil setup. In theory we know the pros and cons for each one of them. Here and here are some related links.

Is it always jumpy on the SRT-10 with so much power on the wheels? Comparing to the latest RAM series, are we capable to carry same payload?

Last but not least, my guess is that such a modification will be very costly, unless I知 very much mistaken.

Well ...honestly , how many guys here are towing ? ( Which I would not mind towing my Dakota RT on a trailer to the track) , Or hauling shit in the back of their trucks ? And as far as a 4 link setup, I’m just thinking off the top of my head, probably $400-$500 for a setup like that , I’m a welder/fab guy , but then again , do we eliminate the leaf pack ? And the top shock ?

I tow with mine quite often. From as light as an empty utility trailer to as much as a mini excavator w/ trailer(smidge over 10,000#). I've had the bed full of firewood on many occasions as well.
