I bought a Draw-Tite but it rattled against my aftermarket Exhaust.... I ended up going with the OEM Subaru & I have no more rattles.... In fact I've got plenty of extra room.....

I may have to go that route... I found out today that it's actually the top of the exhaust canister that's hitting against the back of the hitch frame, not the exhaust tip or hanger arm banging against the frame.

The guy at the muffler shop did have to cut and move my muffler forward by 1 inch.... No biggie,,, I can't see the MagnaFlow etching on the tip as much but I have better clearance going up steep driveways... :biggrin:

I would definately go with the OEM.... It already comes with the wiring harness that has the nipple to poke through the spare tire area... I had to purchase it separate with the Draw Tite and it didn't have the rubber graumet thingy...
