Cheapest tow hitch front and back Auck? Outback 04

Recommended Posts

I need a tow hitch on an h6 04/05 Outback.

Where would be the cheapest place to get one fitted? (its not legal to fit one yourself?)

Also I need one for the front to push a boat into place, cant be done in reverse. Would a tongue system be the best and most economical way? If it costs too much I will find another way to get my boat in place. Cheers

No bueno on the front hitch, there aren't any structures at the front of the car that are a. strong enough for a towball and b. legal to modify.

 

You could definitely do a big steel beam across between the chassis rails to replace the bumper support and then hang a towball from that but there is no way in hell it would be a legal modification of the frontal impact structures.

It was simply to push the boat into place not for use on the road. But if it wont pass a wof its no go.

Where is the best place to get a cheap tow hitch put on the back of this 2006 H6?

Nobody has an opinion on where to get a cheap tow bar fitted?

I tried Subaru Strong used parts, waiting for a reply.

Well Ive had a look and Im 100% confident I can do it myself with my torque wrench.

However, finding one at a wreckers;

Do any other models use the same tow hitch design/bolt pattern as the BP?

Do any of the Legacy sedans use the same hitch/design etc as the BP?

Heaps of tow hitches at the wreckers, but not sure if the design (ie the bolt pattern) was the same for similar models and years?
