I had purchased the hitch in Feb. 2009, cost me US$240+$22 shipping from lexus parts on line = http://www.lexuspartsonline.com/ = but I checked now and the part's price has risen to $404 (!!!). You want (trailer hitch, RX330-350 and probably earlier 2nd gen.) part PT228-48045, which is a Toyota part though it comes with a "Lexus" rubber cap. It fits the Highlander of those years, and if you don't care about the "L" on the rubber cap, you could probably get it cheaper as a Toyota accessory at Toyota. Installation is easy. Any mechanic can do it in about 40 mns.; instructions are good and easy to follow. If you search this forum, you will find a number of discussions concerning the installation, which many (incl. myself) have done themselves.

Below, plse. find the on-line sites of various Lexus/Toyota parts sellers:

After reading the this thread I went back and looked into the prices of this hitch. Why is is going up so high? I purchased one on line a little over a year ago and only paid 220.00

Yes, as I stated in my previous post, I did the same (purchased one just over a year ago at about the price you mention), and was also amazed at the increase in current price.
