    I upgraded my wheels and tires setup to Motegi mr118's and BFG ko2's from stock, about 2 months ago and I love them. I bought a full size spare as well to rotate out and use in case of emergency, but up to this point its been sitting in my trunk which leaves me with little room for actual cargo...

    So I have the naturally aspirated '21 Outback and we have a tow hitch installed. I'm aware of what the manual states in regards to the towing and payload and tongue weights.

    Hey everybody. 2017 2.5i Limited here. Purchasing a tear-drop trailer (Mean Bean) soon, and plan on towing it part time with an Xterra and part time with the Outback. I know it'll be a little heavy for the OB, as it'll weigh about 1800 lbs. May end up trading in for a 2020 XT in a year or so...
