In addition to the switchleg and neutral wires 0-10v dimmers require 2 "extra" wires to be run to the LED driver for the dimming control. Any 0-10v dimmer should work with that fixture as the dimming is done by the driver, not by the dimmer. Fun fact: You can dim the lights fully down by touching the gray and purple wires together off the driver. I found that out by accident.

Here is an Example: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Lutron-D...FUQegQodWkIGLw

Lutron offers several choices. Tolyn illustrated one. They are somewhat pricey as dimmers go.

Amazon lists several. I've used the enerlite dimmers before. Here's a generic one.

Thank you guys for replies. I ordered a Lutron DVSTV-453P, and my brother is coming over today to wire it.
Thanks for responding so quickly.
