This unique adjustable ball mount from Gen-Y Hitch has a vertical shank that is made up of 5 stacked 2" receivers that can accept almost any hitch-mounted accessory. This lets you easily adjust the height of the included ball mount, or any other accessory you choose to use. This mount also has built-in shock absorption to ensure a safe, smooth towing experience. Using technology similar to that found in torsion trailer axles, the Gen-Y mount absorbs road shock, isolating any rough jarring or chucking at the connection point. This prevents the rough motion from transferring from the vehicle to the trailer and vice versa.


Built-In Shock Absorption for a Smooth Ride

Driving over bumps, potholes, and uneven terrain causes road shock, which can result in a rough, bumpy ride and even potentially damage your vehicle or trailer. This Gen-Y Hitch torsion mount is designed to absorb road shock at the connection point to create a safe, smooth ride. This is thanks to the internal construction of the mount, which is similar to that of a torsion axle.


torsion w/cutaway

Pivot points are built into the Gen-Y mount. This allows for movement between the base, which slides into your vehicle's trailer hitch, and the stacked receivers, which provide the connection point for your trailer. When your trailer hits a bump, the stacked receiver portion of the mount will move up or down accordingly.


torsion diagram

Built into the Gen-Y mount are tubes with inner bars that are surrounded by rubber cords. As the receivers rise or fall, these inner bars twist inside of the tubes, attempting to follow the receivers' motion. But the rubber cords prevent the bars from twisting too far. And as each bar turns, these cords compress to absorb the shock. This means that any shock experienced by your truck can be absorbed before it reaches your trailer, and the shock experienced by your trailer won't get transferred to your truck.


This type of shock-absorption system is easy to maintain. Just regularly apply grease to the built-in zerk to keep the components in working condition. No airbags to fill. No small parts to repair or replace. No hassle.


Multiple Stacked Receivers for Easy Adjustment

stacked receivers

This unique mount from Gen-Y Hitch includes a ball mount that can be easily positioned in one of the 5 stacked receivers that sits along the vertical shank of the unit. This dual-ball mount lets you tow a trailer with a 2" ball coupler or a 2-5/16" ball coupler.


pintle hitch

Also included is a pintle lock, which can be inserted into the receiver directly above the ball mount to create a pintle hitch for hooking up a trailer with a lunette ring. Unlike other adjustable pintle hooks on the market, there are no nuts and bolts to remove and retorque when you change the positioning of this hitch. Just move the ball mount and pintle lock up or down to get the proper height and secure them in place with the included pins.


With the 5 stacked receivers, not only do you have the ability to adjust the height of the included ball mount, but you also have the ability to add various other hitch-mounted accessories. Insert a bike rack or cargo carrier. Mount a spare tire carrier. Use a tow bar to flat tow your vehicle. Or just add a fun hitch cover.


Easily Check Your Tongue Weight

scale

This mount features a built-in mechanical tongue weight scale. The highest arrow on the scale indicates the mount's maximum tongue weight (1,700 lbs). The lowest arrow indicates no tongue weight (0 lbs). There must be a minimum tongue weight of 1,200 lbs for the built-in shock absorption to function. This means that the tongue weight scale's white indicator marker should be between the highest arrow and the middle arrow when you hook up your trailer to tow.

Review from a similar Gen-Y Hitch Stacked Receiver Torsion Drop Hitch in Ball Mounts


Very nice, well built hitch, but the torsion part of it only works well when towing near the upper load limit of the hitch. Buy the same hitch without the torsion if you are not going to be pulling heavy loads near hitch capacity. You'll save lots! 610413

Review from a similar Gen-Y Hitch Stacked Receiver Torsion Drop Hitch in Ball Mounts


I have yet to tow with this hitch because I just received it today. Upon receiving the box I knew this hitch was not for the faint of heart. It felt like a massive hitch weighing in at 118lbs. Taking it out of the box I could see that this hitch is built like a beast and will likely be more hitch than I will ever need, but I needed a drop hitch and after asking etrailer questions and doing my own extensive research, I decided this was the hitch I should buy. I like the fact that it will give a little more space between the trailer and the truck, it can be used as a pintle setup if the need arises, and it comes with two ball sizes. Using this for my enclosed landscape trailer I am hoping it extends the life of tires and suspension components. I will try and update in the future after towing with this hitch. 475244


Comments

Product is still amazing. Really takes the bounce out of trailering. It’s almost like the trailers aren’t there. The real noticeable difference is my dump trailer when it’s loaded up. You can really notice the difference between this hitch and a regular hitch. Just in comfort it’s worth the money.

Review from a similar Gen-Y Hitch Stacked Receiver Torsion Drop Hitch in Ball Mounts


I won't repeat what's already been stated. Indeed, the last hitch you will purchase! It's a heavy beast - shipping weight was 138 pounds! My load towing with this is actually a bit under-rated for the sweet-spot of this hitch, but I did not want to use a reducer on my 2019 F-450 to operate the lower-rated Gen-Y. It has definitely made a positive difference on rough terrain (especially off-road). In my case it is mainly to prevent the truck from roughing up the trailer with it's super-stiff nature. Of course this functions in either/any fashion. This will absolutely cover anything you could ever possibly tow with a conventional style trailer. Anything heavier and you'd be looking at gooseneck (which they also make a torsion hitch for - which I am also strongly considering). Not any fault of the hitch, but it will set off your reverse proximity sensors. No way around that with a hitch of this size. I would suggest that it be mentioned that use of this hitch is probably going to require most users to extend their safety chains a good bit. I had 24inch chains with a standard hitch and they fit fine, but this Gen-Y required me to use 38inch chains minimum to not only make it to the receiver chain openings, but to also make it around the hitch itself! Just thought that it might be helpful to others to know that. Luckily I had some longer Grade 70 chains already! Overall, no complaints what so ever. I know what if someone happens to rear-end my truck they are going to get an engine block full of Gen-Y (sort of passive perk I say). 588160

Great heavy duty adjustable ball mount. The only negative is lifting it to put it in the receiver... It's heavy! One unit does the work of 3 pieces that I used to have to carry with me. 564757

Best hitch ever... performs above and beyond as advertised. Will never use straight or drop hitch again. We pull our bobcat up the 4wd drive beaches of North Carolina which are often bumpy. This hitch separated the trailer movement from the truck. Well worth the money. Do it once and never do it again! 672606

Review from a similar Gen-Y Hitch Stacked Receiver Torsion Drop Hitch in Ball Mounts


This thing is built like a tank. I have towed a few items that have been reasonably heavy (although not at 21,000lbs). I can say that it does a good job at limiting the aftershock of terrible roads that I have been on. It does a good job and is easily versatile to use with the adjustments available. The hitch should endure travels towing for quite a long time considering how well it is built. 607077

Review from a similar Gen-Y Hitch Stacked Receiver Torsion Drop Hitch in Ball Mounts


This hitch is a beast. You will not need any more hitches; last you will buy. When received the packaging was a little damaged. I suspect this is due to the overall weight. I figure the hitch alone is about 75-80 pounds. I tow trailers almost every weekend. My enclosed car trailer weighs in at about 10K pounds. My Ram 3500 DRW would buck slightly due to all the road construction. First tow was for about 160 miles. Not once did I feel any push or bucking. If you tow a lot, this is your hitch. Little pricey but worth it. 575908

Ask the Experts about this Gen-Y Hitch Ball Mounts


  • Can Gen-Y Hitch Torsion Ball Mount be Used with an Equal-i-Zer Weight Distribution System
  • I verified with Gen-Y hitch that their torsion ball mounts, like part # 325-GH-1225, can be used with other manufacturer's weight distribution systems, however it isn't the best option. Instead of one of the torsion ball mounts I recommend the Torsion Weight Distribution Shank, part # 325-GH-1202. It's designed specifically for weight distribution systems and will replace the shank on your Equal-i-zer.

  • Recommended Gen-Y Torsion Ball Mount for 2017 Ram 3500 Towing Daily
  • For your 2017 Ram 3500, I recommend the Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount - 5" Drop/Rise # 325-GH-1224 or the 7-1/2" Drop/rise # 325-GH-1225 depending on the height of your trailer in regards to your trailer hitch receiver. Both are rated for up to 16,000 lbs towing and tongue weights up to 1,700 lbs. These 2 inch stacked receivers are very durable and well made for even commercial grade level applications. If you have a 2-1/2 inch hitch receiver, then I recommend the 6" Drop/Rise # 325-GH-1324...

  • Overall Length of Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount 325-GH-1225
  • I went to our warehouse and measured the Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount # 325-GH-1225 for you. From the center of the hitch balls to the nearest of the hitch pin holes the length dimension is 15-3/4-inches; the two hitch pin holes are spaced apart on center by 1-1/2-inches. Please refer to the photo I prepared for you with these dimensions indicated. The longest standard 2-inch ball mount we offer, part # 80232, is 15-3/4-inches long but is rated for only 6000-lbs.
