    Few ways to tell....
    Do you have a tranny cooler?
    Do you have 3.73's?
    Or you can look behind the spare tire...you have to pull that whole pannel off, not just the little trap door....and you shall see the harness..
    Or get a build sheet from Jeep!

    Look for an auxiliary trans cooler mounted behind the grill on the passengers side of the A/C Evaporator.

    If you have the trans cooler, it is a good bet that you have the "Trailer Prep Group" that included everything but the hitch and wire to the hitch.

    OR you could go to your local dealer service department and ask them to print off the build sheet for your vehicle. It will say if you have the trailer prep package or not.

    HTH.

    Here's how I just did a search to try to find info for your question:

    Under "Search Words:" enter "trailer harness prep". Include the 2 spaces, but not the quotation marks.
    Just below check the button: "Match any of the search terms above".
    At "Search in", select "Subject Only". This is critical to focus the search.
    At "Search By Date:", use the default "Any Date".

    First search Grand Cherokee Forum: 3/01 -8/01. You will get 52 hits.

    Next search Grand Cherokee Forum: 8/01 -12/01. You will get 46 hits.

    Search these 2 forums first, then others as your time permits.

    You can experiment with other combinations of search words, but these three will get you meaningful results.

    There is so much info, I cannot summarize what I found. If you do these searches, you can pick and choose info that applies to you.
