Hitch wiring for 14 Limited 4x4

I just bought a new Limited 4x4 and am looking to add a hitch. I found that there is a wired plug already under the car at the back. Someone told me that it may work and may not. Do any of you know if these are usually wired from the factory? If so, I can order a hitch and put it on myself much cheaper than paying at the uHaul shop. But I don't want to order one and then find out I have to pay much more to just have the wiring connected?
Any one know if these always work on the 14s?

Thanks
rambler

Some come prewired even if there's no hitch. Some don't. If yours is wired, it will work...however you will need to take it to a dealership to get the hitch wiring turned on in the computer. Call justforjeeps, they'll get you the parts (you need a plug adaptor of some sort as well) and you can install yourself, but it takes some cutting of the plastic of the bumper. It will look like a factory job when done tho.
