    If you have the tow package,you have the heavy duty alternator.
    Check and see if your battery is a group 27 class.

    Let's say I never tow anything...

    is there any benefit in the battery/alternator upgrades and the oil coolers?

    It's not going to hurt anything... better battery and alternator would be good for stereo equipment/accessories ect... oil coolers help keep things running cooler (always a good thing).
