Rugged, Matte Black Finish

The sturdy steel construction is protected with a matte black finish for added durability. This unique powder coating gives etrailer hitches a carbide-like appearance and a rugged look that sets them apart from traditional glossy hitches. In addition to being rust and corrosion resistant, the tough matte coating hides dirt, scuffs, and dings better than a glossy finish.

Out of the 3 choices, went with the e-trailer version, the optional spacer was useful to space the hitch from the plastic bumper covering, prior to install, lower the spare tire and push forward and retract for better clearance / fitment

Good quality hitch at a fair price. The YouTube video showing installation of the hitch was excellent !



by:

The trailer hitch arrived about a week in advance of the original delivery projection date (loved that), instructions included were extremely simple yet spot on, it took me longer to gather tools and return them than it took to do the install (really loved that). All in all I’m completely satisfied and can’t wait to put this new accessory to the test!!!



by:

Great product that appears to be sturdy and well made. Easy installation with a slight push against the spare tire, but worked great for light towing.



by:

This was extremely easy to install. I loosened the spare tire holder and bolted the hitch and spacer plate directly to the frame with w bolts included on to the pre threaded frame. It took 20 minutes.



by:

What a great experience. Etrailer had the part that I needed and they shipped it quickly. I have installed the part and it is perfect. Great company to deal with!!



by:

Perfect fit, follow instructions except drop spare tire 1inch



by:

etrailer has it figured out. They include a spacer to lower the hitch so u you oh don’t hit your bumper. The other brands do not have that. Also as stated in the instructions. Lower your tire a bit to make install easier.

One year later. The Hitch still looks great. No rust and holding up just fine.



by:
2022 Lexus GX 460

We’ve had this hitch a year and have hauled our trailer back and forth from Florida to Colorado, even towing Johns Jeep.. Great hitch and we couldn’t be happier.



by:

The dealer would have charged close to $[XX] to install a “dealer” hitch, which is basically the same as the one featured here at a fraction of the price. You don’t need to be a high level technician to handle this hitch. It was easy to install, you just need a good wrench! I have towed my boat regularly since without issue.



by:

Product looks great and excellent quality. It will be installed in 2 weeks and the size looks perfect.

The trailer hitch has worked out fantastic as we use it for many different fun things like electric bike hauler and hauler a camping trailer. Never a problem. Thx



by:

This was a great decision to buy this hitch. Went on flawlessly - exact fit which is always a special good feeling. Fast delivery, fair price, and perfect fit, cannot ask for more. thanks

Ordered Thursday, in garage on Saturday morning!!!!! WOW, somebody is sitting on G and waiting on O, shipping within a few minutes of ordering!! Awesome fit and finish! Super easy install! Wish everything was this easy
Satisfied Mike!



by:

Great product, well made, fits perfectly and looks great



by:

Very well built. Easy installation took me 20 minutes including cleanup. Directions were very easy to understand.



by:

Both products look well constructed. Hitch and lock was in a study box, but hitch could been wrapped in packaging to protect it better in shipment. The paint on the hitch was flawless however, but I could see how others who order this may not be so lucky! Overall very satisfying purchase!!!

Great product and customer service. Box came late i guess due to ups and messed up and missing parts. Called up and Carol C to care of it and sent missing parts right away, actually got them faster than original pkge



by:

Delivered promptly. Good directions. Easy install. Looks good. Saved a bunch of cash. The wiring on my GX 460 was already factory installed. I did have to lower the spare tire a bit.



by:

The trailer hitch has done a nice job. It has held up very well.



by:

All three pieces came at the same time. I am going to hook it up then I will let you know.
Looks good..................



by:

Went on easily, works well.



by:
2021 Lexus GX 460

Went on without a hitch…
High quality
no imperfections in the coating. High quality hardware easy to follow instructions and very fast shipping



by:

Excellent hitch, high quality of construction. Very easy install and as others have stated dropping the spare is a necessity to ease the installation.
Unfortunately, this hitch does not reach the GX 460‘s towing capacity of 6500 pounds but stops short at 5000 pounds.

Product bolted in perfect. Easy instal l.

  • Is Class IV Hitch Available for 2023 Lexus GX 460
    The only aftermarket hitches available for your 2023 Lexus GX 460 are Class III like the etrailer # e46YR. We get this question with some frequency and at this point I would say there won't be a Class IV developed outside of the OEM hitch. This hitch has a max gross trailer weight of 5,000 lbs and max tongue weight of 500 lbs. It is also compatible with weight distribution. Unless you are set on towing at the max capacity this is likely more than enough. It is also close to the max that...

  • Is There a Class IV Trailer Hitch for a 2023 Lexus GX 460
    There aren't any Class IV trailer hitches designed for your 2023 Lexus GX 460, but we do have a few Class III hitches for your vehicle. Out of our selection I recommend using the etrailer model because of the matte black finish: - etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e46YR The matte black finish not only looks better, but it also a great style for minimizing scratch damage from road debris like rocks and such. The hitch is rated for 5,000 lbs towing/500 tongue so you'll need to keep that...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver and Wiring For a 2023 Lexus GX 460
    I recommend the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e46YR for your 2023 Lexus GX 460. This easily bolts to your rear bumper giving you a 2" receiver. It has a matte black finish which I find gives it a clean factory appearance. The ZCI Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness # 119250KIT will allow you to install a 4-way flat trailer connector without having to splice into your tail light wiring. This uses sensors placed over the tail light wires which detect when power travels through...

  • Trailer Hitch That is Confirmed to Fit a 2023 Lexus GX 460
    For a hitch that fits your 2023 Lexus GX 460, we have the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e46YR. This hitch is made in the USA, has a bolt-on, no-drill installation and will provide you with a 2" hitch receiver. The 2" receiver is the most common size used for hitch mounted accessories such as bike racks, cargo carriers and ball mounts. It also has a matte black finish, that I personally think looks better installed on your Lexus. If you plan to do any towing, you can round out a tow...

  • Availability of Class IV Hitch for a 2022 Lexus GX 460
    While you are correct that we offer a couple great choices for Class III hitches for a 2022 Lexus GX 460, we cannot confirm whether hitch manufacturers are developing a design for a Class IV application. With that being said, the only current route is to go with a Class III 2" hitch. I always recommend the Curt Class III - 2" # C13043 over our etrailer hitch # e46YR. Not only does the Curt provide you with the same 500 pound maximum tongue weight capacity and 5000 pound gross towing capacity,...

    The etrailer # e46YR would be a great hitch option for your 2023 Lexus GX 460 to carry a Thule T2 XTR part # TH83JV. You wouldn't need an extender either to clear the spare.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver and 4-Way Wiring Harness For a 2022 Lexus GX 460
    I recommend installing the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e46YR on your 2023 Lexus GX 460. This receiver bolts directly to your factory bumper with the included hardware. It has a matte black finish which I find looks better on vehicles than the gloss finish other manufacturers use. The ZCI Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness # 119250KIT will give you a 4-way flat trailer connector. This is the most common connector found on small trailers you might tow and will also allow for...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Difference Between Curt and etrailer Hitches for a 2016 Lexus GX 460
    The etrailer Hitch item # e46YR and the Curt Hitch item # C13043 are identical hitches with the exception of the powder coat finish. They are both confirmed to fit a 2016 Lexus GX 460. These bolt directly to the frame with included hardware. I recommend the etrailer Hitch item # e46YR. The matte black powder coat finish blends in better with the trim on your Lexus and is less obvious than the glossy finish on the Curt Hitch item # C13043. I have linked an installation video below so you...

  • 2022 Lexus GX 460 Highest Capacity Trailer Hitch Recommendation
    All of the trailer hitches for your 2022 Lexus GX 460 has that max tongue weight of 500 lbs and max towing weight of 5,000 lbs like what you mentioned - this has been the case for the all of the recent model years of the GX 460. Out of our selection I recommend going with the etrailer Trailer Hitch # e46YR because it has a matte black finish that blends in better with your vehicle and does a better job at holding up to the elements than the standard glossy black finish does.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver and Wiring Harness For a 2022 Lexus GX 460
    Currently the only aftermarket receivers I can find for your 2022 Lexus GX 460 are the Curt # C13043 and our etrailer # e46YR. Both these receivers are only rated for up to 5,000lbs towing capacity and 500lbs of tongue weight. I even tried searching for the factory receiver through Lexus's website and they do not list it under their parts and accessories. This makes me believe the only way to have the 6,500lb towing capacity is if you buy it from the factory with the necessary receiver,...

  • Parts Needed For Towing a Car Hauler Trailer With a 2010 Lexus GX 460 Without Factory Tow Package
    Since the aftermarket receivers like the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e46YR are only rated for up to 5,000lbs towing capacity for your 2010 Lexus GX 460 you will need to have a custom receiver fabricated. You should be able to use this receiver but will want to find a fabrication shop that will do the work for the receiver to determine exactly what is needed. Often times the factory tow package will include a transmission cooler. As there is not an aftermarket option you can verify...

    To add a hitch to your 2019 Lexus GX 460, I recommend the etrailer Hitch item # e46YR. This hitch is custom fit and bolts to your Lexus with included hardware. It is a class III hitch with a 2" receiver. If you are planning on towing you will also need a wiring harness item # 119250KIT and a ball mount kit item # C45534. I also recommend using the No-Drill Mount Bracket item # 18136 and the item # C42CR to secure the 4-way connector to your hitch. This will put it in an easy to reach...

  • Do You Recommend the Saris SuperClamp EX or the Kuat NV 2.0 for My 2016 Lexus GX 460?
    While both of these racks are great options, the Kuat NV 2.0 # NV22B-NA22B does not provide the weight capacity you need for your 60-pound e-bike when 4 bikes are loaded. This is because the weight capacity reduces to 50 pounds per bike with 3 bikes and 40 pounds per bike for 4 bikes. For this reason, I strongly recommend going with the Saris SuperClamp EX Bike Rack for 4 Bikes - 2" Hitches # SA4026F. Not only will you receive the weight capacity you need when your e-bike is mounted in...
