What's included in each Subaru hitch package?

Stealth Hitches offers a rack only package and a combo package with tow and rack options. The same cross beam and vertical latch block are used on all packages so if you need to upgrade to tow later you can with the Audi Conversion Package.

The Subaru hitch Rack Package comes with standard 2" detachable rack receiver that accepts current versions of bike racks, ski racks, cargo platforms, and other square tube accessories.  A wiring harness is not required if rack connections are the customers only application.

The Subaru Combo Package uses a detachable ball mount that operates differently than a typical square tube receiver hitch.  When inserted into the stainless-steel receiver block, a tight connection is created to the vehicle frame, eliminating the jerking and banging associated with square tube receivers type hitches during starts and stops. This solid connection creates less wear and tear on the vehicle transmission and is a more pleasurable ride for the passengers.  The tight connection also allows our hitch to pass the more stringent European test requirements which carries a higher towing rating than the US rating.  Our hitches conform to both US (SAE) and European (EU) test requirements.

Stealth Wiring Harness

Our "Stealth" wiring harness and controller is specifically designed to monitor and duplicate the tail light functions.  Drawing current from the tail light circuits can cause vehicle faults, especially on European vehicles.  Our controller draws current directly from the battery to eliminate this issue. For vehicles with numerous trailer lights, Stealth harnesses are designed to increase the current capacity from the typical 5-amp solid state limitation to a full 20 amps.

Stealth Hitches offers two hitch packages a Rack package or a Combo package (Rack and Towing). The combo package includes everything the rack package offers plus all components needed for towing. The same vehicle specific cross beam and vertical latching mechanism is used on both packages - meaning that you can upgrade to towing later by purchasing a conversion kit.

Hitch installation

Overall, the hitch installation went OK. The time estimate of 2 hours is very optimistic unless you have a well equipped shop and a lift. The biggest problem is that I was not familiar with the body rivets. It took me a lot of time to realize how to remove them with the "pick tool". Even then, it was not easy. Several of them were destroyed and had to be replaced to finalize the installation. Also, a couple of the body screws were not accessible with a standard screw driver. The picture in the instructions on how to remove the body panel was illegible and I had to go to a u-tube video to figure it out. Once I figured out the rivets, purchased the correct screw driver and figured out the removal of the body panel, the installation went fairly smoothly - but 2 hours, no way.

Very Stealthy

An excellent product. I self-installed with a little help from Jimmy by phone. This is truly the best product I have purchased for our new Subaru Outback. Well Done!

Perfect Hitch for Our New Outback

We have a steep driveway and other cars/small SUV’s consistently scraped hitches going in and out plus my wife hated bumping her shin on the hitch when loading or unloading things from the back of the vehicle. The Stealth Hitch for our new Outback is the perfect solution. When I need to use our trailer I have a ball mount with zero rattle and when we use the basket or bike carrier we have a perfect height adapter. And when we’re not using it we don’t see it and it can’t scrape as the mount is above the bumper. I don’t know why a product like this didn’t exist before. As long as I have a need for a hitch Stealth Hitch will be my choice. The only thing more I want is a locking pin with a matched key to the hitch system for the basket and bike carrier. A pretty minor ask when it’s fixed so many other problems.
