However, it does require trimming the exhaust heat shield but I believe a couple of other brands make this necessary as well.
thanks for the info , I've lowered the exhaust before on a previous vehicle , its such a pain . I hear u haul will do it for 100.00 that sounds like a winning bid

I installed the Draw-Tite hitch in about 45 minutes and didn't even lift the vehicle. In fact, I used my floor jack to support the exhaust. I would save your $100.

Looks great, will be showing this to my wife as she's been saying she wishes our forester was taller.

This looks great! I installed the tork lift eco hitch in my 2019. It took about 1 hour and 45 min with a friend no drilling required. You have to take the bumper fascia off. One tip when lowering the exhaust instead of using a jack you can use a ratchet strap to hold it up just enough to get the work you need done. Trimming the heat shield is no big deal with a pair of snips. There’s a square that’s raised and marked easily with an “M”. Did you install the lift yourself or did you get it done at a shop? I’m debating between the ready lift and the LP adventure lift.
