Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Subaru WRX That's Hidden Behind Bumper Panel


Do you guys have a hitch for my 2018 Subaru WRX that fits behind the panel on the bumper? I'd rather have one like this than one that hangs down.


Expert Reply:

Yes, for your 2018 Subaru WRX we have the EcoHitch part # 306-X7257 that installs behind the rear appearance cut out like you mentioned. If you check out the attached picture you'll see a ball mount going through the opening in the bumper and attaching to the hitch. This hitch also fits the STI models too.

If you need trailer wiring too the kit I recommend is the T-One part # 118768 because it installs without requiring any splicing and because it has the most reliable converter box of the kits we offer.

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.
