Re: How to tell if I have the Class IV towing package...

Interesting, mine is an October 2011 build, wonder if it was redacted. What is on your option sheet ?

Re: How to tell if I have the Class IV towing package...

Isn't there like two different tow packages, for 2013:

The Trailer Tow Group (V-6) only)
Includes rear load-leveling suspension (not available with 4x2 or Quadra-Lift air suspension system), full-size spare tire, steel spare wheel, Class IV receiver hitch with seven- and four-pin wiring harness

The Trailer Tow Group IV (V-8 only)
Includes heavy-duty engine cooling, engine oil cooler, 220-amp alternator, rear load-leveling suspension (not available with Quadra- Lift air suspension system), full-size spare tire, steel spare wheel, Class IV receiver hitch with seven- and four-pin wiring harness.

So it looks like the V6 4x2 should not have the load leveling shocks but the V8 should, unless its superseded by the QL. Other years may vary.

Arrow Re: How to tell if I have the Class IV towing package...

Sticker excerpt from my '12 Laredo 4x2 V-6 (V6 is $100 less than V8)

Would like to know what is in the "heavy-duty engine cooling" and can it be retrofitted to my V6. One thing I believe in is maximum cooling capacity.

I do find it interesting that everyone knows about self levelling shocks but no one seems to have a clue where to find the white/green revese light lead in the cabin...

Re: How to tell if I have the Class IV towing package...

From the parts book:

The HD engine cooling has radiator part number 55038001A* and fan/shroud 55038994A*. The std V8 and V6 radiators are 55038185A* . The fan is 55037992A* Perhaps you could take a look at them and see the differences or just replace/retrofit the radiator and fan.

There may be a difference in wiring harness, but its hard to tell

It looks like the optional V6 oil cooler is built into the oil filter adapter. The HD cooler has a radiator hose connection that the non cooled does not. Don't have a clue were the HD V8 oil cooler is


The * above is the part rev level.

Re: How to tell if I have the Class IV towing package...

Dunno about the oil cooler being opional but mine has one: "NHAP Engine Oil Cooler". My understanding is that it is oil/coolant not oil/air which makes the oil running over 20F cooler than the coolant even odder.

Re: How to tell if I have the Class IV towing package...

Hi everyone,

Today is Sunday March 9, 2014 and I'm planning on taking delivery of my 2014 Overland 4x2, 3.6 Liter Gas, with the Trailer Tow Package later this week.

I'm hoping to get a definitive answer about the 180Amp alternator listed on the build sheet of my vehicle. I've reviewed WK2Jeeps.com, Jeep.com as well as JeepGarage and can't find a definitive answer.

I purposely ordered the "Trailer Tow Package IV" with the understanding the following upgrades included a 220 Amp alternator. However, my build sheet list the following:

Heavy-duty engine cooling.
180-Amp alternator, < Not 220-Amp >.
Rear load-leveling suspension.
Full-size spare tire.
Steel spare wheel.
Class IV receiver hitch w/seven and four pin wiring harness.

InTheBush apparently has a 220-Amp alternator installed in their 2014 WK2 Limited 4x4, 3.6 liter Gas and "trailer tow package IV."

Is the 220-Amp alternator supposed to part of the "trailer tow package IV" on all models? Can the 180-Amp version be swapped for the 220-Amp version? If so, can the existing wiring system handle the extra 40 amps?
On a completely different tangent, could this be a negotiation point for me on the final sale price with my dealer prior to delivery?

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks,
~ wj2000ca
