Question Difference between '97 XL and XLT?

Ok, I have a '97 F150 with the 4.6L I bought used, but honestly can't remember if it's an XL or XLT. I never received any manuals or documentation with it either. Can anyone tell me where I can look to see what the differences are between those models and how to tell which one I have? Thanks

assuming it has fender badges it should say xl or xlt under the f150. if not things like power windows and locks are xlt stuff

Ok, mine has the power windows & locks so I'm guessing it's the XLT. Also, is there any way for me to easily tell if it has the tow package?

Xl and XLT differences- Fender badges, side mirrors, power door locks, windows, etc.
Does it have a factory hitch??
