Does anyone have any experience with mounting a hitch on an 04-08 Forester XT using the TurboXS catback (or similar)?

Based on what I've read, any of the available hitches on the market will hit the muffler even when coupled with XL hangers, so I am instead thinking of cutting and welding a new arch on the hitch to clear the muffler. Has anyone done this?

I realize that this will likely won't be as strong, but I only intend to use the hitch for a bicycle rack.

Thank you,
Ben

@N555FXT I literally just installed a curt hitch on my 04XT yesterday. I've got a turboxs cat back too! I ended up having to take it to a muffler shop to have them reweld the hangers but it fits like a glove. I can grab some pics later if ya want.
