2001 would come with trans cooler and different gear ratio possibly other then that not much else is different.

if you are going to put stuff on yourself.i would suggest

trans cooler
oil cooler
3 row radiator (from NAPA)
wiring kit

The factory tow package would have included:
    Trans cooler
    Factory hitch and wiring
    Full size spare

Some older XJ's (pre 92 I think) got 3.73's with the tow package...but the 2001 only came with 3.54's.

If you are going to build it up for towing yourself, then ditto on what badger said. The only thing I would add to that list is the full size spare....you don't want to end up towing on the donut if you get a flat. Wink

Thanks Phantum. It took me 6 months to find the one I wanted but of course it had no trailer pkg. I was not just going to slap a hitch on! This is my first jeep which is replacing a huge f*** 150 that costs more to drive now than the queen mary. I already have a collection of trailers (open, covered and dump) so i did some research and heard about the bulletproof 4.0. I already ordered the oil cooler kit, wiring kit. have to see how big i can go size wise on the trans cooler and i will do the rad if necessary. i will put up some pics (on flat ground, sorry) as soon as i can. Again thanks for the info!

EDIT: 2001 cherokee limited same blue as your sig pic. 90k.
