It is rated for 2750 lb from the factory. Have pulled and hauled logs out of the woods with them as well. Traded the beast in at 186,000 miles with brakes and tires invested.
Other than the towing vehicle weighing less than the load pulled; i see no reason why a outback couldn't easily pull 3k, possibly 4k. (catalina 22?) I have complete faith in them.
This is intriguing. It sounds a little crazy, so its for me. What kind of hitch was on the outback? Factory? were they optional or did they all come with one?
