How to tell if I have the Class IV towing package...
 
Hello Guys... I couldnt find a way to tell if I have the class IV tow package or not that comes with a 220 amp alternator and increased engine cooling...

So... How to tell?

What's strange is I have 3.6 with the class IV towing which is odd since the 3.6 doesnt need it, but I'd say look on your window sticker if u still have it.

There is only one factory hitch assembly for the WK2 and it is class IV. What else you get with the towing package depends on whether V6 or V8 and 4x4 or 4x2. A V6 4x2 just gets the hitch, wiring, and full size spare tire.

Are you sure it doesn't include rear self-leveling shocks? I have V6 4x4 and I think have them.

The best way probably is to get ahold of your build sheet, either by having a dealer run your VIN or requesting it from jeep customer support. You could probably check the part number tag on the alternator and based on that infer the engine cooling.

Yeah -- you also have the self-clunking shocks. If you have a hitch, you have the tow package (unless you bought used, and someone added it).

There are at least 4 different tow packages that use the same hitch. Some have cooling and alternator upgrades, some not.

Thats right so how do I tell if I have the complete package?

Look at the build sheet, it will have everything put on that VIN.

It may list things like:
AHXP Trailer Tow Group IV
BAJP 220 Amp Alternator
NHAP Engine Oil Cooler
TBBP Full Size Spare
NMCP Heavy Duty Engine Cooling
XFHP Class IV Receiver Hitch

Are four different packages, two prices, same hitch in all. Load levelling shocks only come with 4x4.

Not exactly true, my 4X2 has the load leveling shocks with the class 4 towing package.
