AFAIK, that comes with the factory tow-prep package. Which includes that, as well as an additional cooler in front of the radiator.

fscabrera,

2003 and early 2004 had a different center support bracket.
I think you need to purchase this one

Default Great Pricing on Lexus Parts!

FYI: I got the full OEM kit PT228-60540 for only $248.26 at:
http://www.oemlexusparts.com/OEMPart...T22860540.html

It's a nice source for good pricing on Lexus OEM parts in general!

Does anyone still have the install instructions PDF? Sewell took them down.


Or if you remember the torque values for the bolts and if you used all of the shims (two sides and two centers)?

Shout out to OP for making this a breeze for me on the '08 GX470 over the weekend. Took me about 1 hour and saved a few hundred in cash. I look at this making the OEM hitch free given that there was no labor. Thanks, CL!
