Can you guys help me out finding a front mounted receiver hitch for a 2005 Lexus GX 470? I would guess that the FJ or 4Runner front mount hitch, such as the one I linked, would fit, but not sure. I cannot modify the factory bumber though.
I would like to use my plate-mounted winch with this vehicle.

Thanks for any advise.

Thanks, but I already have a winch plate. What I need is the front mounting receiver hitch. More exactly, I am asking if the FJ Cruiser version would fit on the GX frame. If so, does the front bumper need to be modified.

Thanks anyway for the effort.

Cheers,

Gabor

Isn't your frame closer to a 4Runner frame? I'd check the fit guides from Curt or Hidden Hitch.

The FJ and the 4Runner front mount hitches are identical (same part number), at least for pre-2010 models. I used to have an FJ. I think I will go for the FJ/4Runner front hitch receiver and try it in the GX. I also want a skid plate on it.

Thanks.
