2014 Subaru Outback Hitch Recommendation that Does Not Require Drilling


Hi I was wondering if Torklift EcoHitch is the only model that requires no drilling to install. Also, having a Rear Bumper Underguard would it work? As Ive noticed that EcoHitch requires some trimming of the Bumper. Thanks


Expert Reply:

For your 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon the only hitch we offer that does not require any drilling is the EcoHitch part # 306-X7162 that you referenced. If you have an aftermarket skid plate or shield installed we can't guarantee the hitch will fit and most likely you'd have to remove it prior to hitch install.

For trailer wiring you'd then want the part # 118467 which is a confirmed fit.

If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in 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 with clip, and a storage bag.

If the ball mount kit does not include a ball mount with the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, check out the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.
