Default 2007ish Ram / Dakota towing

Looking at used 2007 +/- a year Dakotas and Ram's.

2 in specific have the 4.7L V8 and both appear to have some kind of towing judging by the overhaul disable button on the column shifter.

The Ram Quad Cab has a Hidden Hitch on the back and I managed to grab 5000# and 8000# of the label. I wouldn't think the Hidden Hitch brand was the stock receiver installed on them. I've found them on quite a few of the ones with the 4.7's.

The Dakota Quad Cab doesn't have a receiver hitch on the back at all, but there are the 3 holes for a bumper mounted ball. The make or break deal to this would be if I could bolt on a hitch.

Is it safe to assume these already have trans coolers and the works of the towing package installed? I'll probably call a dealer anyways and get the info on them by their VIN's, but would still like to hear some info prior.
