2013 ML350 - PICKING UP TOMORROW Question on Tow Bar

Hi, picking up our 2013 ML350 ordered in May tomorrow.
ML has the Tow Package and recall seeing something on this forum that the vehicle should come with the class 3 hitch tow bar insert and ball.
I searched and can't find info, can anyone confirm if the tow bar insert and ball come with the vehicle.

The drawbar w/attached 2-inch ball came with 2012 models equipped with the tow package, so I assume the 2013s should be the same. There was a thread with photos sometime last year.

Yes, very easy to slip in and secure with the clevis pin. Only thing is it is not real tight in there; I suspect it may rattle under some conditions. On my last ML I drilled and tapped a bolt with tapered end through the bottom of the receiver to snug it up. I will do the same to this one.
