Husky WeatherBeater Front and Rear Floor Liners Review - 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon

Today on our 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon, we're going to be taking a look at the Husky Liners WeatherBeater Front and Rear Floor Mats. These are in black. Part number HL99841. Now, here we've already got our driver's installed. As you can see, it contours perfectly to our vehicle. It's going to fit great in here.



Carpod Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon

Today in our 2014 Subaru outback wagon we're doing a test fit of the Carpod wall 23 by 47 cargo carrier. That part number is M2205, its designed to work with 2 inch hinges. So the first thing we're going to do is take a few measurements here, are ground clearance is going to be first. We are going to have about 17 and 1/4 inches of clearance overall for our vehicle we're adding about 31 and 3/4 inches and our closes point to our Outback will be here at our reyshank 00:42 and that's going to be about 2 and 1/4 inches away there. Now on our Subaru we have a single driver's side exhaust, it does come straight out and towards the ground down here, so we're not going to have any problems carrying heat sensative materials on our carrier since it heads directly towards the ground. Now unfortunately in this position we aren't able to access our back hatch area but if we take out our pins at each corner here, we'll remove those, we're able to set our sides all the way down for a more compact position. So leave those sitting up, we'll set our pins off to the side leave them somewhere where we won't lose them like our glove box or somewhere in our vehicle. We'll pull our strap through just underneath our bars here or sides here and then we are going to close those down and its just going to make it easier to pull out and secure our sides, so they don't move whenever we're driving down the road. Now in this position here we are able to access our back hatch area, we can get anything in or out that we may need, and we might be able to stand in between the carrier and the vehicle.

It's going to have that 2 inch by 2 inch receiver tube opening here, fully welded plate steel design for the chain tie downs on either side, with a 5/8 pin hole going all the way through. Your max tongue weight on the end of your receiver tube is only going to be 600 pounds. With a total trailer weight and towing capacity of 4,000 pounds.

The first thing we're going to go over is the tilting feature. We'll go over some measurements, and then a couple more features of the rack itself. If we come down here to our bolts at the center, we're actually going to remove those. We'll start with our larger one, and then we'll remove our smaller pin. This is going to allow us to tilt our bike rack away from our vehicle, which will then give us full access to our back cargo area.

Part number on this is 63153. This is one of my favorite carriers. I really like the way it's built, really like the way it assembles. You're just going to have three pieces; goes together very easily. This is going to be what I call kind of like a medium size, expanded mesh for the floor here.



Carpod Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon

The part number on it is M2205. Obviously this carrier stands out as opposed to a lot of the other cargo carriers cause it does offer us full protection around the outside for our items. So even if we're loading up smaller items or several little things that typically wouldn't work well on a cargo carrier, this is kind of gonna fill that void for us. Now the sides themselves are gonna be about 22 inches off of our platform. All the way around there.

Its part number is 118467. Now, what we'll do to test it is take just a standard test light. We're going to connect our ground clamp to the bare stud that's sticking out. That's the ground side, so that's going to test that for us. Then we'll have our running lights on or our marker lights. That should give us a constant signal from the dark brown wire.

Kuat Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon

Today on our 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon, we've got the Kuat Transfer out and we've got it tested here on the back of the Subaru.

It also tilts up against the rear of the vehicle for reducing the overall length that we've added. Part number on it is TS03G.

We place that right in front of our front break caliber and then just push it down.





Subaru Outback Wagon Questions

  • The Thule Hitching Post Pro, # TH934XTR, and the Vertex, # TH9029XT, are similar bike racks but their differences make them unique. The Hitching Post Pro can fold and tilt as can the Vertex, but the interface is different. The Hitching Post Pro requires pulling a pin out to tilt the rack down whereas the Vertex has a simple lever that you pull. The Hitch Post Pro has straight arms spaced 12-3/8 inches apart from outside to outside. The Vertex has arced arms spaced 13 inches...

  • A 2 inch hitch will be able to handle more weight and be compatible with more hitch accessory applications, like bike racks or hitch cargo carriers. If you can order the vehicle without the factory hitch, it would be a better option for you. For your 2011 Subaru Outback V6, I would recommend the Hidden Hitch Class III 2 Inch Hitch, part # 87568. This hitch has a towing weight capacity 0f 4,000 lbs. and a tongue weight capacity of 400 lbs. It will not allow the use of weight...

  • Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite are sister companies. The Hidden Hitch # 87568 and Draw-Tite # 75673 hitches share identical design and weight capacity. They would install in the same manner using identical instructions and would both have the same 7 inch distance between the receiver hitch pin hole and the furthest rearward portion of the rear bumper when installed on a 2011 model Subaru Outback Wagon. Although the hitch will attach to the vehicle using existing holes in the frame,...

  • In the realm of light weight, 2 bike racks, the Kuat Beta and the Thule Helium are at the top of the list. The first major difference is weight. While both are very light weight racks, the Kuat Beta, # B202-114 is in the feather weight division at only 12-3/5 pounds. The Thule Helium, # TH9042 is slightly heavier at about 18-1/4 pounds. The Kuat Beta boasts an impressive 100 pound weight capacity (50 pounds per bike). While the Thule Helium can manage 70 pounds (35 pounds per...

  • We have a couple of options for carrying kayaks on the roof of your 2011 Subaru Outback. If you will be carrying one kayak then most of our customers who have the 2010 or 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon select the Yakima BowDown Kayak Carrier, # Y04042, see video link. The Thule Top Deck Rooftop Kayak Carrier System, # TH881, runs a very close second. If you will need to carry 2 kayaks, the Yakima BigStack Roof Mounted 2 Kayak Carrier System, # Y04041, is the carrier most often...

  • To answer your last question, I do have experience with this exact issue. A lot of people have run into this problem. It isn't always easy to find tie down points on a vehicle whether that vehicle is a 2015 Subaru Outback or a 1956 Rocket 88. But I have an excellent solution for you. You can use the Thule Quick Loops, # TH530. You won't have to remove any bolts, just close the cylinder under the hood (away from anything that gets hot of course!) and the other in the rear hatch....

  • First, you should check the owners manual of your 2011 Subaru Outback Limited to be sure that tire chains are recommended for your vehicle and tire size and that there is not a Class size recommendation the you should be aware of. Many newer vehicles require Class S chains which can be no larger than 15mm for side wall clearance. The Thule CB12 Snow Tire Chains, part # TH01221104, will work on the 225/60R17 tire size and they have an internal clearance of 12mm, which will...

  • All three of the racks you referenced are fantastic racks that would do well for you. Kuat NV part # N102 Kuat Sherpa part # S101 Thule T 2 part # TH917XTR The rack with the most features is the # N102. This rack has wheel mounts, locking anti-rattle hitch pin and built-in bike repair stand. I like this rack the best because of all its features. I attached a review video for you to check out. The # S101 is similar to the NV except it is basically more of a stripped...

  • I checked with Yakima and for a 2013 Subaru Outback Wagon with factory side rails that run front to back you will need to use the RailGrabs, # Y00138, with the small claws. You need to have 48 inch long crossbars (or longer but 48 inches is the recommended length), # Y00408. If the bars you have are shorter then you will need new bars. I have included a link to the instructions and a link to a video showing a typical installation on a similar vehicle.

  • Since you have a roof rack on your 2015 Subaru Outback Wagon, we have a couple options that will work for you. I recommend the SportRack Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs, part # SR5323. This system will fit most round, square, or factory crossbars with a maximum width of 3 inches. The minimum crossbar spread this will work with is 24 inches. This system includes the straps that secure the kayaks to the carrier. The tie-downs like part # SR0704, which are attached to the bow...

  • The J-Stacker Kayak Carrier, # SR5511, is one of our most popular kayak carriers and is designed to work on Thule square bars, round bars and most factor crossbars. This kayak carrier would be my recommendation for your Subaru Outback. It is required to tie down the bow and stern when carrying a kayak on top of a vehicle. I spoke with my contact at SportRack and found out that the ropes are made of a soft polypropylene material that should not damage the paint on your vehicle....

  • As long as your 2015 Subaru Outback Wagon isn't a Sport model the Draw Tite Hitch part # 36493 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit it and would work well for you.

This rack has a ton of positive reviews from our customers who have tried it. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

  • According to Yakima, you will be able to use the Yakima RocketBox Pro 11 Black Cargo Box, # Y07193, which is the closest to the Thule Cargo Box # TH602 that you have referenced. Any of the Rocket Box series, SkyBox series, of SkyBox Pro series, are stated to fit provided that you have the Wagon model. I have included a link below to the installation details and a video review of RocketBox Pro 11 below. I recommend checking the capacity of the roof rack and the roof before loading...

  • Draw-Tite/Hidden Hitch trailers hitches # 75673 and # 87568 for the 2015 Outback also fit the 2016 Subaru Outback. And Curt also has an option, # C13206. These hitches will fit as long as your Outback is not a Sport model. Since you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin...

  • The Thule CG9 Tire Chains, # TH2004205104, and the CB12 Chains, # TH01221104, are both Class S compatible tire chains and will fit the P225/60R17 tires on your 2013 Subaru Outback. The main difference between the CG9 and CB12 chains is that the CB12 tire chains are manual tensioning chains and the CG9 chains are have automatic tensioning. The CB12 chains are also rated for off-road and on-road use. The CG9 chains are for on-road use only. I would go with the CG9 chains. The...

  • You are correct about the change key. The lock has to be unlocked for the change key to be able to remove the lock core. The issue is on the new cargo boxes like # TH624 you have to first use the key it came with and have sort of in between the locked and unlocked positions (my contact at Thule stated between 1 and 7) and the key should come out allowing you to use the change key to replace the lock cylinder with the new ones you have.

  • Yes, the Thule Raceway 3 Bike Carrier, # TH9002PRO, will work great on your 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon. I recently had the chance to install this rack on a vehicle and it is the easiest to install and remove trunk mount rack that I have used. For this reason, this is the rack I personally would choose for a trunk mount rack. You will need to remove the rack to open the rear of the vehicle because the bottom support on the rack will rest on the top of the bumper when properly...
