2004 Subaru Legacy Outback Trailer Hitch with 2 Inch Receiver Opening


Im looking for a 2-inch hitch to carry a bike rack that I already have from another vehicle. Is there a way I can do this? Thanks.


Expert Reply:

There is no Class III receiver hitch available for the 2004 Subaru Legacy. We do have an adapter that will fit the class II 1-1/4 inch receiver hitch, # 80303 that would allow you to use a 2 inch accessory in your class II receiver.

When using an adapter, you must take into account that your tongue weight will be reduced by 50 percent so the weight of your bikes and rack could not exceed 100 or 125 pounds, depending on which hitch you purchase. I have linked below to the hitches we carry for the 2004 Subaru Legacy. The Curt Class II, C12270 has the highest tongue weight rating at 350 pounds (without an adapter) and would be my recommendation.
