Blue ox and roadmaster sell the baseplate kits so it seems like it should work?
Yes you can flat tow the 2005 Lexus GX470 only if it has the manually selected N in the transfer case. Some late 2005 model Lexus had the electrical switch select transfer case and they CANNOT be flat towed.
Toyota/ Lexus has NEVER certified ANY of their models to be recreationally towed in any way. The lawyers wouldn't allow it for liability issues.
