Trailer Tow Group IV Standard on Overlands?
 
When I "Build my Own" Overland on Jeep.com Trailer Tow Group IV shows as an option (AHX).

I am trying to place an order for an Overland with my dealer and he is telling me that it is standard.

Anyone know for sure?

My plan is keep 'helping' the dealer until he finds it and get's the order correct...you'd think if I gave him the option identifier it would be very straightforward?

It's standard on the Overland. I confirmed it the other day with the dealer when I went and ordered my Jeep. It's listed under stand equipment. I was looking for that and the 430N Radio with Garmin Nav to make sure they were both standard.

It better be standard. My Overland has the code "AHT Trailer Tow Group" in the order description.

It's a V6 and I didn't have to pay for the option. When I ordered it, the online configurator didn't give it as an option.

Re: Trailer Tow Group IV Standard on Overlands?
 
I just checked again on jeep.com and as of today it is no longer showing up as an option on Overlands, I have a print out from yesterday that still shows it....

Must be standard.

Note that the WK2jeeps.com website below (also stickey here) shows the Tow Group IV as an option on the Overland (dated as of May 2010). It may also be included in other packages such as ORII.

Has this just changed and Tow Group IV is now standard like QL?

Regardless, it's worth confirmation given some features and package updates.

Just talked to my salesman.

In Canada, the AHT trailer option is standard on the V6 Overland. To get the IV trailer Group, you need a Hemi.

My Overland has just moved to D1 statis with a build date of December 17.

Here comes Santa.

On the Overland, the tow group is standard. V-6 vehicles get Tow Group III. V-8 vehicles get Tow Group IV.

Making this standard was a running change. When I ordered a vehicle in July, it was not standard. The one I finally ended up getting was built in mid September and by then it was standard.

Re: Trailer Tow Group IV Standard on Overlands?
 
the difference between tow group IV and just the receiver was the load leveling rear suspension.
the overland has full air suspension standard now, so tow group IV is standard.
unlike when i bought my overland with steel springs and it was an option.

wk2overland is correct. I just picked up my Overland yesterday and was surprised it had the IV tow group because I did not pick that option when I ordered in Oct.

To bump a thread... I'm trying to figure out if my Limited has the Group IV. It's a 5.7 w/ the ORG II package which you can no longer choose on the Jeep site so I can't see if the tow package is included. If you're right and it's just autoleveling then I'd assume mine has it since I have the full air suspension.

Any way to confirm if the package is installed or what?

Overland comes with a tow group standard, TOW or TOW IV, depending on the engine. Tow (use to be Tow III) comes with the V6 and Tow IV with the V8.

"Extras" with Tow IV: 220amp alternator (180amp std on Limited & Overland), 7400-lbs towing (7200-lbs in 4x4) & Heavy Duty Engine cooling

Check your window sticker it list the tow package in the car. If you no longer have that, contact milous on the forum with the last 8 of your VIN he should be able to check your build sheet for you.
