    Just purchased an 18 forester. I'm looking at adding a few mods to the vehicle. Planning on adding a trailer hitch (2 inch curt) and looking to add crossbars. Does anyone have a recommendation regarding the 2 inch hitch or general recommendations for crossbars (OEM or aftermarket)

    Hi, I just purchased a 2019 Subaru Forester Limited, one of the things I really wanted were the safety features associated with the backup camera, rear cross traffic alert, backup warnings, etc. I also added a hitch mounted bike rack. Now, when I back up, the backup warning system beeps...

    I just had Subaru install a 1.25” hitch on my 2018 Forester so I can get a bike rack for our two ebikes.
