    Using a VIN, how can I tell if there was a tow package originally installed? I have the VIN, 1FMFU20586LA50282, but don't know where to pull specific build data for it. I know the VIN will tell me me basics like model, where it was built, engine, etc., but that's about it. I also tried calling the two local Ford dealerships, and they were useless... Thanks.

    Never gave it a shot myself, but I bet that would work. Yay google.

    EDIT: Figured I would try it out with yours haha. You have an 06 Limited Expedition, but unfortunately it looks as though you can't tell the HD tow pkg from the VIN. Bummer because I always thought you could. On the old trucks (1st gens) if you had the transmission cooler behind the front bumper and a 3.73 rear axle, you had the HD towing pkg. No idea if that holds true with the newer models though.

    RI-Matt, how did you get all that info? I'd like it for my rig but none of that is in the VIN decoder.
