Towing - I have class III hitch, what else do I need?

I have a Nitro SLT 4X4 and am going to be towing my boat (2500 lbs with trailer) 400 miles and through some mildly steep inclines.
I have a mopar class III factory hitch and wiring which was added by the dealer when I bought it but I am wondering what else do I need?

The factory tow package is:

Class III hitch receiver and wiring
heavy duty engine cooling
power steering cooler
full size spare

Couple questions here -

1. I heard the SLT 4x4's already have the heavy duty cooling, true? If not is it just tranny cooler they add?
2. Do I really need the power steering cooler?

Thanks for the help

I've asked myself about the power steering cooler too. No clue what the deal is there.
But Dodge doesn't list anything on my window sticker about a trans cooler, only those that you listed yourself.
My guess is you will be fine for a 2500 lb trailer. Maybe one of the forum techs can give you more specific details.
