2011 Subaru Questions and Answers


  • Hitch Recommendation for Towing A Pop-Up Camper with a 2011 Subaru Outback
  • 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 Draw-Tite Class III 2 Inch Hitch, part # 75673. 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 distribution. There...

  • Are Thule passenger Vehicle Tire Chains the Same as or Made By Konig
  • Konig does make the tire chains for Thule and they are under the Thule umbrella. There are a couple of ways you can search for tire chains that will fit your 2011 Subaru Outback. You can use our hitch hunter and enter the year make and model vehicle and then click on tire chains. Or you can use the link below and search by tire size. Please consult the owners manual for your vehicle as some manufacturers do not permit the use of tire chains on certain vehicles.

  • Kayak Rack Recommendations for for a 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • 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 selected...

  • Trailer Hitch Compatibility with a 2011 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport
  • The reason class II trailer hitches are not recommended for your 2011 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport is because your vehicle has a maximum towing capacity of 1,000 lbs and maximum tongue weight capacity of 200 lbs. I confirmed these capacities with my local Subaru dealer. This information can also be found in your owners manual under the towing section. Trailer hitch manufacturers design trailer hitches for vehicles based on the specs provided by the vehicle manufacturer. Since the maximum...

  • What Tire Chains Are Recommended For A 2011 Subaru Outback Limited 2.5 AWD 225/60R17 Tires
  • 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 make them...

  • Can Friction Sway Control Be Added to a Class II 1-1/4 Inch Non-Weight Distribution Hitch
  • Proper trailer loading is your first-line defense against dangerous instability and sway. Heavy items should be placed on the floor in front of the axle. The load should be balanced side-to-side and secured to prevent shifting. Tongue weight should be about 10 to15 percent of gross trailer weight for most trailers. Too low a percentage of tongue weight can cause sway. Load the trailer heavier in front. You can add a friction sway control like the Pro Series Friction Sway Control Kit,...

  • Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • 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 installed,...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon 3.6R Limited
  • The Draw-Tite part # 75673 would be an excellent choice for a trailer hitch for your 2011 Subaru Outback 3.6L Limited. This hitch has more more attachment points to the vehicle than the comparable Curt hitch (total of 6 versus 4 for the Curt product). The Curt hitch also requires use of a stabilizing strap for all non-trailer loads: bike racks, cargo carriers and so forth. Because I prefer more attachment points to the vehicle, I would lean toward the Hidden Hitch. If you plan on doing...

  • Replacement Mounting Hardware for a Thule Adventurer Roof Mount Cargo Box for a 2011 Subaru Outback
  • You probably already know that the correct hardware for the Thule Adventurer cargo box is the QM3 hardware, # TH04997. Provided that the crossbar diameter is no larger than 3-5/8 inches, this hardware will fit the crossbars on the 2011 Subaru Outback. If you wanted to replace the hardware with the EasySnap Mounting Kit, # TH05820, you would have to make modifications to the box. If you are prepared to make the necessary modifications, this kit will fit on crossbars that are no wider...

  • What Parts Needed To Carry 2 Kayaks on 2011 Subaru Forester w/ Factory Side Rails
  • To mount 2 kayaks to the roof of your 2011 Subaru Forester that has factory side rails, you will need to install cross bars and a kayak carrier. The Rola Extended Series Roof Rack # 59826 that you selected is compatible with kayak carriers that carry 1 kayak by the hull. There would not be sufficient space to carry 2 kayaks this way on your Subaru Forester. To add crossbars to your existing side rails on your 2011 Subaru Forester, I would recommend the Thule Roof Rack, part # TH450,...

  • How To Key The Yakima HitchLock # Y07235 To Match An Existing Yakima SKS Key
  • You can key the Yakima HitchLock, part # Y07235, the same as the Yakima SKS key you have now. What you will need to do is get the lock number that is stamped on the front of the Yakima lock cylinder that you already have and enter that lock number in the key number box on the product page I have provided a link to. Then, enter the quantity you want and click add to cart. This will get you a lock core(s) that will match the SKS key you have now. To remove the core on the Yakima hitchlock...

  • Comparison of Tow Ready and CURT Trailer Wiring for a 2011 Subaru Forester
  • The CURT Wiring Harness, # C56040, does have a separate ground wire that needs to be attached to a clean bare metal surface using the including self-tapping screw. The Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, # 118467, grounds through the connector that connects to the vehicle. Both are grounded, just in different ways. The most popular wiring harness for your 2011 Subaru Forester is the Tow Ready, # 118467. There is no significant length differences on the 4-Way end wiring. I have included...

  • Compatibility of Thule # TH956 Parkway Bike Rack and Draw-Tite # 75673 on a 2011 Subaru Outback
  • Yes, the Thule Parkway 4 Bike rack, # TH956, will work great with the Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch, # 75673 on your 2011 Subaru Outback. We installed this hitch on a 2011 Outback, see video, and measured the distance from center of hitch pin hole to the farthest back part of the rear bumper and the measurement is 7 inches, see photo link. The distance from center of hitch pin hole to the upright bar on the Thule # Th956 bike rack is 9-1/2 inches so it will work great on your...

  • How to Wire a 2011 Subaru Outback for a Brake Controller
  • The 2011 Subaru Outback is not equipped with an under-dash connector for installing a brake controller, but a controller can still be installed using our Brake Controller Install Kit, part # ETBC7 if a 7-way trailer connector is needed, or # ETBC6 for a 6-way connector. The install process, although a bit involved, is pretty straightforward and can be completed by the average do-it-yourselfer. We have plenty of help available online through the website, through our experts, or by phone. Other...

  • What Trailer Hitch Will Fit a 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX with Dual Exhaust
  • I checked with CURT and the Trailer Hitch # 11317, will fit a 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX with dual exhaust. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. If you plan on doing some towing, the hitch comes with a ball mount, pin and clip. For a ball, use # 19256 (1-7/8 inch diameter) or # 19258 (2 inch diameter). For trailer wiring, use T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, # 118464. I have included a link to the installation details for the wiring as well.

  • 2011 Subaru Outback with Factory Crossbars Thule Roof Rack Recommendation
  • I checked with Thule and for your 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon with factory installed cross bars the recommended roof rack is part # TH45050. This rack does not attach to the crossbars of your rack though, it actually attaches to the raised side rails. For a bike rack the Thule Prologue part # TH516 would be a great option. Check out the review video I attached.

  • Canoe Carrier Options for a 2011 Subaru Outback That Does Not Use The Factory Crossbars
  • I spoke with my contact at Thule and you can use the Thule Roof Rack, part # TH450, # THLB50. This roof rack will have a foot pack that will attach to the side rails of your factory roof rack and use Thule 50 inch long crossbars. I am including a link to the installation instructions for the Thule # TH450 foot pack. With the Thule roof rack installed you will use the Thule Canoe Carrier-Rooftop Carrier, part # TH819. This carrier has padded cradles that attach to the Thule crossbars...

  • Idea for Attaching Light Bar to Roof Cargo Basket
  • I am sure there is a way you could mount the Vision X Xmitter Prime IRIS Off-Road Light Bar # XPI-12M to the Yakima Load Warrior part # Y07070 if you wanted to, but aside from modifying light bar brackets like part # 57-0000 there really isn't a way that I can recommend.

  • Fascia Trimming Required to Install Curt Class I Part # C11120 on 2011 Subaru Impreza
  • The lower bumper fascia would need to be trimmed approximately 1-5/8 inches by 4 inches. You can get a better idea of the necessary trimming by checking the install instructions, and looking at the photo I produced for you. Remember the old woodworkers adage: Measure twice, cut once. If you were planning on using the receiver as a mounting point for a bike rack or cargo carrier, be aware that Curt requires the use of a stabilizing strap like part # 18050. Failure to use a stabilizing...

  • How Visible Will CURT Trailer Hitch # 11317 Be On 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX
  • The item you selected, CURT Trailer Hitch, part # 11317, will fit your 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX. The hitch will be visible from the rear and you will be able to see the cross tubing of the hitch. The hitch is designed to be tucked up out of the way, but cannot be completely hidden, as you would not be able access the receiver. With any hitch, it will be somewhat visible but the hitch manufacturer does try to design the hitch to be mounted as close to the vehicle or out of sight as much...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2011 Subaru Forester
  • For your 2011 Subaru Forester, I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 75650. This is a Class III trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver. Class III trailer hitches will afford you more bike rack options than lower rated hitches. I have included a link to the installation instructions and a video showing a typical installation for you to view. The Thule T2 bike rack has undergone some design changes but is still available. The newest version is # TH9044. It is important to make sure...

Parts needed would be the LandingPad 13 for Yakima Control Towers, # Y00239, Round 48 Inch CrossBars, # Y00408, and the Yakima Control Towers, # Y00124. Once the roof system is installed you will be able to use any of the Yakima Canoe Carriers. I have provided a link to these carriers...

The Rhino Rack system # RRVA118S-2, # RRSX005 will give you a lower profile for your vehicle by approximately 1/2 inch. I found that the Rapid Crossroad # TH450R will sit 1.48 inches above the raised side rail on your 2011 Subaru Forester, with the load bar adding 1-1/8 inches. The SX...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX Wagon
  • The 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX has different configurations and depending on which one you have will determine which hitch, if one is available, fits. If it has single exhaust, there is no hitch option available. But, if it has quad exhaust, you can use Curt hitch # C11120. I have included a link to the installation details for you. Curt hitch # 11317, fits a 2008 to 2012 Subaru Impreza Sedan, but not the STi models. It does not fit the 5 door model (wagon). Curt hitch # C11120 fits a 2011...

  • Which Trailer Hitch Receiver Will Have the Most Ground Clearance For 2011 Subaru Outback
  • Each hitch is positioned to sit tucked up and close to the bumper as you can see on the product page pictures. All of the hitch receivers available for the 2011 Subaru Outback will sit in the same general position with ground clearance varying slightly from each hitch. For example, from the ground to the top of the receiver on the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 75673, measures 14-1/2 inches. So you would have approximately 12-1/2 inches from the ground to the bottom of the receiver,...

  • Using Curt # C31064 Front Mounted Receiver on 2012 Honda Pilot for a Snow Plow
  • When considering using an accessory such as a snow plow in a front mounted receiver, the line pull or tongue weight capacity of the hitch needs to be taken into account. The tongue weight capacity is the maximum amount of weight that can be suspended from the front mounted receiver without damaging the hitch or the vehicle. Since the # C31064 receiver has a 350 lb line pull capacity, using a plow weighing over 400 lbs with the battery included would seriously exceed the capacity and would...

We do not offer any frame-mount carriers that can fit larger frames and my contact at Thule confirmed they offer no other frame-mount carriers with compatibility with frame tubes larger than 3-3/8-inches.
