Towing with an Escape

I have a v6 fwd escape, and am thinking about doing some casual around-town towing with it. The Ford web site shows a towing capacity of 3500lbs with the class II towing package. From
what I can tell, the Escape's class II towing package is just a tow hitch and a wiring harness? Is that all there really is to this towing package?
Does the v6 escape come standard with a transmission cooler, or should I consider having one added as a precaution? I'm not looking at this point at towing long distances, and probably would be towing more like 2000-2500 lbs at most.
Thanks! Scott

The standard configuration of the Escape V6 allows for up to 2,000 lbs. of towing. I'm not sure what the towing package includes, but I would guess (besides the hitch and harness) that it would have beefier springs and a larger cooler. The Escape has a transmission cooler, but if I was going to be doing any regular towing, I'd opt for a larger one or an additional one. Also keep in mind that the tranny doesn't have a filter per se, just a screen to catch the larger chunks. An external filter might be an additional option to look in to.
