Default Factory tow hitch rear bumper?

Please post some close up photos of your factory tow hitch rear bumper.

My wife's 2017 Cherokee Overland which did not have the factory tow package was lightly hit in the rear at a traffic light a few weeks ago (finger size split in the bumper cover), we had been thinking about installing an aftermarket tow hitch at the time, so decided to have the body shop install an OEM tow hitch bumper and bumper cover when they were doing the repair work instead of the original non-tow hitch bumper (price was about the same either way). The only problem it appears something is missing, there is a round recessed hole to the left of the hitch, I assume it is for a hitch wiring adapter, which I have not done anything about yet, and would like to know what the factory setup looks like before I do.

thanks Ike

p.s. I know there is more to the full factory tow package, this will likely just be used for a small cargo rack, bicycle rack, etc. maybe pulling an occasional small lawn mower trailer ,I have an F250 for moreserious towing
