How to run VIN to see what options actually came with vehicle.

I am trying to find out if my 2012 Liberty Latitude came with the towing package transmission cooler. I dont have the white plastic auxiliary fan attached to water pump. I do have a small radiator behind bumper, but it looks like it may be the power steering cooler.
I was looking at it the best I can without light tonight, and since it was my wife that bought it used, she was told it had the Tow Package. I dont see any codes, etc that may suggest it.
Any help would be great.
Thanks.

Use the contact us on jeep.com with your vin. They reply back pretty quickly with the build sheet. I've done it for all 5 Jeeps I own.

If you don't have the mechanical fan, hitch, wire harness or full size spare then chances are the vehicle wasn't equipped with the tow package. Nothing to worry about though, it can be added.
The transmission is cooled through the A/C condenser, I was unable to find a different one so I don't think the tow package made a difference there.
The "sway control" as some call it is a function of the vehicle's stability control, nothing different there either.
Mopar calls the mechanical fan a viscous fan. You'll need the fan, clutch and hardware to install it.
The mopar receiver is the one you want as it tucks up nicely out of the way compared to the aftermarket ones.
You'll also need to purchase a trailer brake controller or prepare for increased maintenance on the brakes or the inability to stop.
Mopar recommends a load leveling hitch and for good reason. The stock springs are squishy and a trailer of any real size will point your front end to the sky.
They sell two different wire harnesses. A 4 wire and a 7 wire one. You want the 7 wire one. The receiver has a place to mount it already welded to it.
That said, additional transmission cooling is a very good idea as well as a temperature gauge.
This info is based on the experience I had while improving my KK's towing capability. I still have to add the fan and I'm undecided about the auxiliary cooler.
