2007 Expedition: HD tow package?

Have 2007 expedition if it has the factory 7 pin installed it has the hd towing pkg. also you can look at the trans cooler since its bigger than the non hd version. I have seen expeditions with only the 4 pin

Dad has the factory 7-pin...but he says he counts "about 8 passes" thru the cooler. Would be difficult to check the radiator size, without another to compare. Either way, he doesn't want to go beyond 6000 lbs anyway with the trailer, but we'd still like to know.
We'll try looking up the VIN in the couple of links posted here.

From my research on the '04s there's a few differences:
- Factory 7-way Harness
- Slightly larger radiator
- Larger tranny cooler
- Brake (elec) wiring kit

You can however get the 5.4L and the 3.73 without the HD package. Here's the 2007 Ford Towing Guide. Check page 14 the "536" is the HD towing package, and page 20 for limits.

However, I could not agree more with 325BH, check the door panel and do the math on your weights and make sure you're in compliance.
Thanks. The '07 towing guide is where I got all my info in my initial post.
