We can offer you several excellent options in a 4-bike swing-away type hitch bike rack for use on your 2016 Lexus GX 460. You can see top items by clicking on the link provided. Among these is the excellent Yakima FullSwing # Y02465 that you referenced in your question.

In this specific bike rack category my go-to product is the Yakima FullSwing # Y02465. The FullSwing comes fully equipped with locks for the rack itself and for your bikes. The bike cradles can be adjusted along the rack's arms to suit the spacing needs for the specific bikes loaded and the SpeedKnob with integrated hitch pin provides tool-free anti-rattle installation in your hitch. 4 bikes up to 40-lbs each can be accommodated.

Some bikes that do not have a top frame tube (as found on a typical man's bike) will benefit from addition of an adapter bar like # UB01. This helps keep such bikes level on the carrier for good ground clearance. Most step-through bikes, dual-suspension bikes, and small children's bikes will require a bike adapter bar.

No matter which carrier you choose, you'll want to load the heaviest bikes on the rack first to help minimize rack motion as you drive.
