        What's included in each Subaru hitch package?

        Stealth Hitches offers a rack only package, a towing package, and a combination tow and rack package.  The same cross beam and vertical latching mechanism are used on all packages.

        The Rack Package uses a detachable rack receiver (2" and 1 1/4" square tube) 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 Tow 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 carry 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.

        Totally Hidden

        Hitch is totally hidden when installed. Very high quality construction. Extremely well packed in shipping box. Needs more detailed instructions and perhaps an online video. A real pain to remove rear bumper on GTI, but not a shortcoming of the hitch. Once bumper was off, install was very easy.
