    Hello All,

    I want to install a class II hitch on my 01 Forester. Dealer wants
    almost $100 more for an OEM hitch as apposed to other hitches I've
    looked into like Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch... not to mention
    additional $$$ for the install.

    For anyone who has a non-OEM hitch, which one did you go with and how
    do you like the finish/install. Any problems with wiring or any other
    aspect of the installation? What was the installation like - how
    long, difficulty, any special tools, one/two person job...?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Working at a subie dealership, I know they are expensive. But I also
    know the subie hitch fits. the stock exhaust system will not hit. all
    of the support parts will be installed. and best of all, when it gives
    you a noise, the dealership has to fix it. On the other hand, go hit
    junkyards up for a used oem hitch assy....

  3. You could try to get your local dealer to match an on-line price from
    www.subarugenuineparts.com (email Jamie there) or other online price.
    In addition to junkyards, I have bought 2-3 accessories for my 2 soobs
    off of ebay.

    good luck!
