Re: OEM Trailer Hitch Rear Bumper with/cut out

I have the OEM hitch. It honestly doesn't look extremely beefy, but I've hung some weight back there and it handled it without complaint. I towed a small SUV on the back of a uhaul car hauler.... and I went over a few mountain passes with it. The FJ handled it all very well.

Thanks everyone... great info. My 2010 FJ has the silver solid valance and I want to switch out for the trail team valance with hitch notch insert... are there any step by step instructions for this? Or should I simply buy a new OEM bumper that has the valance with hitch notch already there?? From the above info, I have decided to go with OEM valance with hitch notch just not sure how hard it is to swap out one valance for the other. Truely appreciate all the help, this is my first FJ bought last May so I am just starting to improve what it didn't come with.
did you wver figure out how to install the black valence?

Does bumper have to come off?

No need to remove the bumper. 4 bolts, 4 push clips holding the valance on.



Sufficient Speed, Acceptable Drag
