Video Transcript for Review of Gen-Y Hitch Trailer Hitch Ball Mount - Replacement Shank - 325-GH-204

Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a look at the Replacement Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount Shank with the five inch drop or five inch rise for two inch hitches, has a 16,000 pound gross towing weight capacity. Now, this part will replace the shank from your Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount with the stacked receivers. This one has the solid shank you can see here that'll slide into your two inch hitch receiver on your vehicle, and then up front, you have the four stacked two inch receivers that'll let you mount a ball mount, a bike rack, or other hitch-mounted accessories to your vehicle. The adjustable height of the shank will let you tow trailers of different heights with the same vehicle, so works well if you have a lifted truck. The ball mount can be lowered or raised to match your application, and if you install this in the drop position like it is shown right here, and then put your ball mount the lowest receiver opening, it'll get you a maximum drop of five inches.

If we flip this around 180 degrees and installed it in the receiver at the rise position and then you put the ball mount in the highest receiver of the rise position, it'll get you a maximum rise of five inches. This is a heavy-duty steel construction, it is ideal for towing extra large loads. They do put a zinc primer on it and then it's coated with a durable silver vein epoxy powder coat to resist corrosion. Now, when you do install this into your hitch receiver, you can see the two hitch pin holes here, it will require hitch pin and clip or a hitch lock for securing this shank to the vehicle. Now, those items we do sell separately on our website.

The hitch pin hole diameter, you can see there's two of them, they're 5/8 of an inch in diameter. This is SAE J684 certified, it is made in the USA. Few specs again, the application fits two inch by two inch trailer hitch receivers, gross towing weight capacity on this is 16,000 pounds, tongue weight capacity is 2,000 pounds. One last thing I do wanna mention is this shank will have many different dimensions to it, so what I would recommend is for you to go to our product page of this part number, and on that page, we'll have a picture of this with all the dimensions put on it. That way, you can verify any dimensions that might be needed for your application.

But that should do it for the review on this Replacement Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount Shank with the five inch drop and five inch rise for a two inch hitch, has a 16,000 pound gross towing weight capacity..

Works great for me. It helps me keep different trailers level when pulling and it allows me to have multiple hitches on at the same time. I use one to hold a home made hay bale unroller. Only issue is I may need to shorted a couple of hitches by an inch or so to fit in the normal hitch location on this,

The hitch receiver that is equal to the shank of the ball mount does have less clearance behind the hitch pin hole than the other, open-ended receiver slots. On this Replacement Shank, the closed-in receiver has a clearance of about 4-1/2 inches behind the center hitch pin hole. This measurement is taken from the center of the middle-aligned hitch pin hole to the welds at the back of the receiver.

  • Recommendation for Carrying Bikes Between Truck and Trailer
    For your application I recommend checking out the Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount # 325-GH-204. This fits a 2" hitch and allows you to use 1 receiver for towing your trailer and then you can mount your Thule T2 Pro X Bike Rack # TH83GC in the taller receiver. Please note this will only be a viable solution if you don't have anything tall on the tongue of your trailer - like a jack. You can check to see if your bike rack will hit anything on your trailer by measuring from...

  • Hitch Adapter Needed for Towing 5x8 Trailer and Using Ultimate MX Hauler on 2020 Toyota Tacoma
    I do have a way that I believe will allow you to tow your 5x8 trailer and use the Ultimate MX Hauler. Gen-Y has their shanks which have multiple receivers like part # 325-GH-204 which features a nice 5" drop/rise. While this does solve the problem of you being able to take your trailer and dirt bike carrier, there is also the issue of the spare tire on your 2020 Toyota Tacoma. With pretty much every extension and dual hitch adapter (at least that we carry) there is a 50% reduction of the...

  • How to Use 6" Drop Ball Mount and Hitch Bike Rack on 2017 Chevy Tahoe
    I have an alternative solution for you but it will look a little different than the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount # D210 as the 2" drop you're seeing is pretty standard. To tow your trailer and carry your Thule bike rack I recommend checking out the Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount # 325-GH-204 which gives you the upper receiver as well as a 5" drop for the lowest receiver. If you have a ball mount with a 1" drop then that's what you'll use for this application, otherwise...
