Compatibility of Curt Hitch Receiver Paired with Factory Hitch Receiver on 2019 Subaru Ascent


The OEM was way too tall on our lifted Ascent, so added a second, your 13400 model. Pretty nice look, we just leave the OEM cover off, looks bad a**.

That factory receiver along with the aftermarket Curt # C13400 will be a really nice combination not only for the appearance but also for the ability to do some unique things that a dual hitch receiver offers.

For instance, you can use a cargo carrier like # E98872 on the bottom or standard ball mount to tow, while also using a bike rack like Kuat Transfer 2 Bike Platform Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount - Tilting - Gray # TS02G for example on the upper receiver. Many people look to tow a trailer and some bikes and this combination will give you that option as well. The dual hitch looks really cool and you get the functional bonus with your lifted Subaru Ascent.
