Is this right for you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Have had issues your trailer bouncing and want to soften the ride so you don't feel tossed around in your truck
  • Tow a very heavy trailer or toy hauler with a pin weight between 1,500 and 3,500 lbs
  • Have no patience for filling up an air bag every time you hit the road

No, if you:

  • Haul your trailer with a truck that sits high - this pin box adds some height which can cause chucking if you can't adjust to compensate
  • Have a short bed truck or a toolbox and need a pin box that gives you more clearance between your truck and trailer

Built-In Shock Absorption for a Smooth Ride

Executive torsion

If you've ever towed a fifth-wheel trailer before, you're no stranger to road shock. Driving over uneven terrain can result in a rigid, bumpy ride. And uncomfortable fore-and-aft chucking can occur when you're starting and stopping. When all of the motions combine, the road shock can even potentially damage your truck or trailer.


This Gen-Y Hitch torsion pin box 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 box, which is similar to that of a torsion axle.


Pivot points are built into the Gen-Y pin box. This allows for movement between the box, which attaches to your trailer, and the king pin, which connects to the fifth-wheel hitch in your truck bed. When your trailer bounces or jerks, the king pin will move accordingly.


torsion diagram

Built into the Gen-Y pin box are tubes with inner bars that are surrounded by rubber cords. As the king pin moves, these inner bars twist inside of the tubes, attempting to follow the pin's motion. But the rubber cords prevent the bars from twisting too far. And as each bar turns, these cords compress to absorb the rough 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.


Easily Check Your Vertical Load

The vertical load, or pin weight, refers to the weight that a fully loaded trailer exerts downward on the hitch in the truck bed. Too little vertical load can cause trailer sway and too much can cause poor performance.


This Gen-Y pin box has a built-in mechanical scale so that you can check to see if your vertical load is too high or too low. The red section on the top of the scale indicates your maximum vertical load (3,500 lbs). The red section on the bottom of the scale indicates no vertical load (0 lbs). A vertical load of at least 1,500 lbs is recommended for the built-in shock absorption to function effectively. This means that the scale's white indicator marker should be within the green section when you hook up your trailer to tow.
