How To Fix Squeaky Lexus GX 460 Rear Door – in 30 Seconds!

Lexus GX Squeaky Back Rear Door Fix

Fix a squeaking Lexus GX 460 rear door by installing a new Bofn tailgate latch ( We install this new latch on our GX460 to see if it fixes the squeak on offroad trails and city streets. If you’ve ever noticed a squeaking noise coming from the back of your Lexus GX460 when you hit a bump or drive down a rough trail or street you may need to replace your rear door latch. Bofn is one of a small number of companies (no affiliation to them) that make replacement latches that claim to fix the sqeak. Their design uses a latch that increases in size towards the body of the vehicle to add increasing tension on the rear door versus the stock latch that is flat the entire length.

DID IT WORK? So far the latch has significantly decreased the squeaking coming from the back door on paved and rough roads. Occasionally, when hitting a very large hole or bump, or rolling over something that causes extra body twist, I will hear a squeak but this is now the exception rather than the rule. I highly recommend this product! Wish I had done it a long time ago – especially considering it only took about 30 seconds to replace!

– Page Contains Affiliate Links – Why? (click here to expand) We lose money every month producing the TX:GX Overland website and YouTube channel. Creating content takes time and money – we have to pay for:
  • Website and WordPress hosting
  • Trip videos that cost money for fuel, admissions fees at parks/events, and wear and tear on our vehicle
  • An enormous amount of our time producing this site and the videos (I won’t even begin to calculate that cost!)
Basically, we lose money every month. We use affiliate links and YouTube monetization to try to reduce this monthly loss but they don’t pay much. We lose about $20 per month just from our website costs (not including trip costs). Purchases made via this website using affiliate links sometimes result in us making a small commission (usually 2-4%) that we use to keep the lights on. But since we lose about $20 per month (not including trip fees) you can see we are definitely not “in it for the money” – we do this out of a love for helping other people enjoy the outdoors and overlanding, to help people get started and find gear to make their trips more successful, and to produce videos that inspire and entertain our viewers. Even though we lose money each month, we are committed to helping the world we live in. Please read “Who Our Affiliate Links Benefit” to see a list of the causes and charitable organizations we donate to. Thank you for your understanding!
– Who Our Affiliate Links Benefit (click here to expand) TX:GX Overland is about experiencing the outdoors and doing so in a responsible, sustainable way. Without the trees, the forests, the clean babbling brooks and the open trails we enjoy while overlanding we simply couldn’t exist. Therefore, we are committed to helping organizations that support our outdoor adventures. Though we do not make a profit from the TX:GX Overland website or YouTube channel we still make donations to worthwhile causes. We make donations to the following organizations:
  • OneTreePlanted
  • Tread Lightly
We have reviewed these organizations and determined they fit our purpose. We do not have the resources to do an exhaustive background check of their prior/current activities, partnerships, board members, etc. so if they are “doing something bad” we’re not aware of it. We hope our donations to these organizations is doing the world some good – if you disagree with these choices we respect your decision, please respect ours.
