Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2008 Subaru Outback 3.0 LL Bean Edition


Will this receiver attach to the 2008 Subaru Outback 3.0 LL Bean edition? Trends Auto had a list of compatible vehicles for this part that does not include my vehicle. If not, is there something that will work?


Expert Reply:

Yes, Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75560 fits the LL Bean models of the 2008 Subaru Outback. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation for you.

If you plan on doing some towing I recommend 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 have the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, use the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.

And for trailer wiring you can use # 118461 to add a 4-Way flat connector to the rear of the vehicle. I have linked a video showing how it installs as well.
