According to Remco, the Lexus is not towable four down and no lube pump is available. May be dolly time.

Very few Toyota's are towable 4-down it any. having towed 4-down and with a dolly, I'd go back with a dolly.

Odd - the Remco site says no lube pump is available for the 2003 ES 300. There are several transmissions available for the ES300 and some are towable with a lube pump, but supposedly the 2003 and later all have the 5 speed and Remco says they have no pump for it.

You might want to identify the specific tranny in yours and call Remo direct to see what they say.
