Default What does SLT actually mean?

I just bought a '95 SLT Laramie, and thou it has become clear to me that the Dodge SLT Laramie is the rough equivalent of the Ford XLT Lariat, I am still wondering as to the meaning of those letters.

I've come up with the following (based on the fact that GT = Grand Touring):
Ford XLT = eXtra Luxury Truck (or eXtra Luxury Transport)
Dodge SLT = Super Luxury Truck (or Super Luxury Transport)

But it could also mean something Light Truck, and then what does the ST stand for, Super Truck?
Anyone know?

I have a 01 SLT Laramie, and it does not have power seats, let alone heated seats. It also doesn't have the over-head display. I'm not sure it even came with a cd player because it had an after-market one in there when I got the truck. It also has just the bench seats.
