This unique adjustable ball mount from Gen-Y Hitch has a vertical shank that is made up of 4 stacked 2-1/2" 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 4 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 4 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 (2,400 lbs). The lowest arrow indicates no tongue weight (0 lbs). There must be a minimum tongue weight of 1,600 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.

Video Transcript for Gen-Y Hitch Ball Mounts - Adjustable Ball Mount - 325-GH-1324 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at Gen-Y torsion adjustable receiver with ball mount for two and a half inch hitches. This unit is designed to fit inside of a two and a half inch by two and a half inch trailer hitch receiver. It features a 21,000 pound towing capacity and a 2,400 pound tongue weight capacity. The unit is very strong and durable, it's built to last forever.It can be used in the drop or rise positions and it provides up to a six inch rise or drop and a three inch rise or drop at the same time. What you'll notice here is that this is the portion that goes into the hitch on the vehicle, you have one tube that sits above that point so that's where we get our three inch rise or drop and then you have three other slots that sit kind of below that portion of the hitch. That's how you get the rise and drop at the same time.

If you have it installed in this position this would be the drop position, again giving you up to a six inch drop and then also a three inch rise at the same time, flip it over and you have those same measurements in the rise position as well.These adjustable slots fit two and a half inch attachments, so the opening measures two and a half inches by two and a half inches. You could use a lower setting to tow a trailer and a higher setting to haul a bike rack or a cargo carrier or a hitch mounted spare tire carrier. You got four slots on this units, really ensures that your towing set up is always as level as possible. If you're towing different trailers then you're gonna have different coupler heights and you can adjust the Versa-ball mount to any one of these slots to make sure that your trailer is level as possible which is the safest way to tow.It does come with a Versa-ball mount which has a two and 5-16th inch ball and a two inch ball on it, it's gonna allow you to tow trailers with different coupler sizes. It also comes with a pintle lock so you can tow trailers that have a lunette ring.

Now this is only to be used in conjunction with the two and 5-16th inch hitch ball.When you're not using the pintle lock you can slide it back to the stowed position and secure it in place that way you can still make your connection to a standard coupler. That can also be taken out and completely removed if you don't want to use it. Then when it comes to adjusting the Versa-ball mount you just remove the included pin and clip, you can take this out, rotated it over to switch to the two inch ball, and then again you can slide it into any one of the slots that would work for your application. When you find the slot you need push it in, line up you pin holes, and then secure it with the pin and clip.Now as you can see we have a lot of other components going on back here, that's because this is a torsion hitch. It has a lot of great features, it's a rubber torsion hitch, it only has ...

excuse me, the rubber torsion hitches only allow 10% of the trailer inertia to transfer compared to 100% when using a standard hitch. Internally there are heavy duty rubber torsion flex cords which eliminates shock transfer. Now the towed vehicle and trailer track independently which gives you greater control and added safety by reducing sway and trailer bounce, also braking control increases since all the weight on the towed vehicle and trailer is distributed evenly, giving you increased positive contact when braking and maneuvering. This system also helps keep you under control when confronted with road conditions such as bumps, pot holes, expansion joints, curves, hills, and so on.The unit is rated to have a 90% smoother ride which will help increase tire life, help increase gas mileage when towing, and it also helps reduce driver fatigue. This system also reduces trailer fatigue which helps protect your trailer and whatever it is that you're hauling.

It's fabricated with heavy duty steel, it's precision milled and drilled for a perfect look and fit, has protective powder coat finishing on it which keeps it safe from rust and corrosion, and it's a low maintenance design so there's no air bags or bearings. There's just two grease zerks on the unit so you can't really see it right now, but there's one located right here and then one located at the same point on the other side. That way you can attach a grease gun to it, pump in the grease, and it keeps all the moving components lubricated as needed. Nice, easy maintenance design, it is pre lubricated.Also the unit has a built in mechanical tongue weight scale for balanced, safe loading. This allows you to visually see the tongue weight amount and adjust your load as needed. For an optimal ride with this unit you'll want 1,600 to 2,400 pounds vertical load or tongue weight.A few measurements to go over with you real quick, I took a measurement from the center of each pin hole to the center of the hitch balls. There's two pin holes on the unit, you can use whatever one works best for your application, these will accept a standard 5-8th inch diameter pin. From the center of this one to the center of hitch balls, 17 and a half inches. From the other one to the center of the hitch balls is 19 inches. From the center of each pin hole to the back of the upright portion this one is three and a half inches and then this one is five inches.The product is made in the USA, features a 10 year warranty on all moving parts, and a lifetime guarantee on the rest of the components. That's gonna do it for today's look at the Gen-Y torsion adjustable receiver with ball mount for two and a half inch hitches.

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.

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

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

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


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

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
