Hello FJ Forum Members!

I'm new to the forum and I was guided here to ask the people of this forum for help.

I'm looking to install a tow hitch on my 2010 Trail Teams edition FJ Cruiser. I would like to use the black valance cover (PT228-35110-HC) instead of using the silver version that comes with most of the kits. I think the silver would look tacky with my black TT theme.

Here lies the problem: every site I go to says it isn't compatible with my 2010 FJ. They list the part working with 2011 FJs and newer. I reached out to some Toyota staff that sell parts online and they referred me here, even after I provided my VIN to them.

Does anyone know why this part would not work for my rig?

Thank you in advance!

The silver is paint, plastic "carcass" is black, just strip (& put a clear-coat if desired), Plasti Dip spray-on is another common solution.
If you get an after market hitch you can (probably) use the current cover; OEM hitch sits higher, thus the "cut-out".
The exterior body trim pieces are (should be) universal for all FJ years (my '07 & '11 share MANY identical parts).
Some structural & underhood components are NOT compatible yr to yr (different engine design after '09, emission stuff in later '13-'14 (?) models.

There's a silver notched on FB/Marketplace Portland, seller in Bremerton. $40. Sand it, paint it, done.

I used fine texture bedliner on mine, the bumper wings and the Frisbee.
