Ground Clearance of Draw-Tite 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver #75560 Installed on 2005 Subaru Outback


Id like to know what the resulting ground clearance would be from the bottom of the 2inch hitch installed on my 2005 outback wagon.


Expert Reply:

The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 75560 is a confirmed fit for your 2005 Outback wagon. It will have a ground clearance of 10 inches from the bottom of the lip on the receiver tube.

If you will be towing with this hitch receiver, I recommend the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118461. This installs to factory wiring inside the cargo area behind the trim on the driver's side. I've attached a video to assist.

For a ball mount, I recommend the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount # BWTS10035B. This will give you a 2 inch and 1-7/8 inch hitch ball as well as give you adjustability to tow a trailer level by offering the 1 inch height adjustments between a 3 inch drop and 3-1/2 inch rise. This ball mount also offers the ability to hide the ball on the backside when not in use to give you a clean look and save your shins when loading cargo in the rear hatch. You may also want to consider a hitch lock like # BX8858 to protect your investment.
