The mode is built into all V8 transmission, and you may eventually add a hitch. Nothing new as my Y2000 has tow/haul mode and no hitch. I use tow/haul mode on hilly winding terrain as it keeps the V8 in better rpm ranges and offers better engine braking. The transmission also shifts less, less wear and tear in that driving condition.

Where do you add the hitch to because my husband and father-in-law looked and didn't find a place.

Its a mopar part. You have to cut your real valance in order to put the hitch.

Oh no, towing isn't that important to me I don't want to cut into my car.

You can buy the replacement valence with the hitch hole built in. Would look alot nicer.

Thats for the factory hitch (which is a nice hitch). Draw-Tite and U-Haul hitches go under the valence.
