I've got a question for you LX450 owners out there (or those of you with any knowledge about this): as you probably know, the rear bumper on the LX has a plastic cover on the center portion instead of the metal plate found on the Landcruiser. I'm wondering if the same metal plate is actually beneath this plastic cover. Has anyone checked this out? I'm thinking about removing the plastic cover to check, as I'd prefer the metal plate to the plastic. Please let me know if you've got the answer before I move any further on this. Thanks!
