TIP 1: The Outback Wilderness Trailer Hitch Panel Accessory Installation Guide contains a printable fascia panel template to be used in place of the Trailer Hitch Fascia Panel Template (SOA554002). When using the printable template version, it is CRITICAL the template is printed in “Actual Size”. ALWAYS measure to confirm the sizing of each 1 inch square block located on each printable section as shown below.

  • Additional Measurements:

The measurements listed bellow, can be made from bottom points of the 1 inch square blocks to further confirm the accuracy of the template.

TIP 2: The Trailer Hitch Fascia Panel Template (SOA554002) is made from a heavier gauge paper that provides added rigidity. Pre-bending the template in the highlighted areas pictured below can help provide extra flexibility. Bend the template in both directions along the indicated lines.

TIP 3: Use both hands to press down on the template as shown in the photo below. A helper is recommended for taping down the template or tracing with a marker while being held in place. Use a sharp utility knife to CAREFULLY cut the bumper fascia.
