Trailer tow group

I received a email from DaimlerChrysler customer assistance regarding what my 95gcl was equipped with from the factory. They go by your vin#, it lists alot of things, one thing is Trailer Tow Group. Does this mean I can tow things? It also says Engine Cooling-Heavy Duty. Maybe I'm not reading the manual right but I don't see anything about Trailer Tow Group. Any help out there would be appreciated. Guess I can always ask a dealer too.

Well,

does it have a hitch?

does it have the electrical hookups?

You might have the tow package but not the prep group with hitch and electrical hookups.

I have no hitch, and for the electrical plugs I will have to look. But what does the trailer tow group mean?

The trailer tow group is a factory installed option to allow you to safely tow a trailer. It consists of a hitch, wiring connection that bypasses the lighting monitor module, a lower final ratio, and transmission fluid cooler.
The tow group comes in a few configurations. First is the trailer prep group, which it sounds like you have. This consists of the transmission cooler and lower final gear ratio. It comes standard on all 5.2L Grands.
Second is the trailer tow group I, which consists of the wiring, final gear, cooler, and a class I hitch.
Third is the trailer tow group III, which consists of all, except it is a class III hitch.
Last is the trailer tow group IV, which oddly enough consists of all before, and a class IV receiver.
