Tow Package - diesel

I am looking at buying a used diesel that does not have the tow package. If I have the dealer add the receiver will the jeep have the same towing capacity as one that was built with the tow package?

Re: Tow Package - diesel

I would expect that it would have the same towing capacity. Diesel comes with the heavy duty cooling, transmission, brakes, rear axle and alternator anyway. The frame of course is the same. If the dealer is adding the hitch they would "activate" the towing harness as well. Only item not available is Rear Load Leveling Suspension. Not sure if dealer can add this or not?
otherwise Should be good to go.

Diesel optioned:
220-Amp Alternator
230MM Rear Axle
800-Amp Maintenance Free Battery
Anti-Lock 4-Wheel Disc Heavy Duty BrakesAnti-Lock brakes are equipped with electronic sensors that prevent wheel lockup, offering improved steering control under extreme braking or slippery conditions.
"Eco Diesel" Badge
GVW Rating - 6,800 PoundsWhen properly equipped. See dealer and check owner's manual for details.
Heavy Duty Engine Cooling

Tow Package Optioned:
7 and 4 Pin Wiring Harness
Class IV Receiver Hitch
Delete Rear Tow Hook
Rear Load Leveling Suspension
Full Size Spare Tire
