2008 Sahara tow kit

Was getting ready to order a 2010 Sahara Unlimited, but there is a used 2008 near here in good shape. Trying to understand exactly what I'm looking at.

Re the tow kit...does the receiver on the OEM kit bolt to the bumper? I found that surprising. Or is this likely an aftermarket setup?

If the OEM kit does bolt to the bumper, can someone also tell me if the 2008 (6-spd) came with the 3.73 gears when you ordered the tow kit, as the 2010 does?

Finally, any other differences between the 2008 Sahara Unlimited and the 2010?

All the tow hitches bolt the same --4 bolts through the rear frame cross-member. Easy job! If it came factory with a tow package, it was 4.10 gears, and more recently they've been putting 3.73's in them. If it's not factory tow, there's a good chance it has 3.21 gears.
