mount diagram

This unique adjustable ball mount from Gen-Y Hitch has a vertical shank that is made up of 4 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 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


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.

Video Transcript for Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Gen-Y line of torsion hitches. Now these are available for 2 inch shanks, and for the 2 1/2 inch version.Now the Gen-Y torsion style hitches are coming along at a perfect time, with the trailer weight ratings of our trucks getting higher and higher and higher, we're really starting to build a lot of pressure at the connection point.By having the torsion flex system in between the connection point here at the truck and the tongue of our trailer, we're able to drastically reduce the amount of energy that's being forced into the back of the truck. So we're going to save a lot of the wear and tear on the chassis and the components, but also as a driver it's going to feel smoother. It's going to feel safer, and it's going to be easier to drive.On the trailer side of things, a utility trailer you're probably not too concerned with, but as these forces are generated it puts a lot of strain on the welds and the construction. The biggest benefit I think you're going to see out of these on the trailer side though, it's going to be your big bumper pull campers or your bumper pull horse trailers. Being able to keep the contents of that trailer safer, through reducing the amount of impacts they go through, are really going to add up over time.Now the torsion flex system this uses, is a tried and true system that's been used on trailer axles for a very long time.

Basically you can see the outer square tube here, well there's an inner square tube as well. In between those tubes, on all four sides, we've got cords. Those cords as the energy is applied, kind of squeeze together and expand. That's going to help reduce that effect. So all of that energy gets absorbed right inside of the torsion setup.Now let's take a look at the Gen-Y torsion hitch in use.

You can see cruising down a normal road service, as long as it's smooth and flat, the Gen-Y hitch is just going to make minor corrections. As we go from the paved surface on to the rougher surfaces of campsites or maybe gravel roads to get to our end destination, you can see it's going to have a lot more action. The pot holes, the wash boarding, things like that aren't felt nearly as much. Even out in field, we're going to have the much rougher surfaces and even ditches, the Gen-Y hitch does a great job of keeping everything in line.Now our 2 inch version is available in the 1200 series for the off set, or the 1400 series for the deeper drops. These offer a 1700 pound tongue weight rating, and a 16000 pound gross trailer weight rating.Once we go to the 2 1/2 inch version, we're going to have the 1300 series for the off set, and the 1500 series for that deeper drop.

These are going to offer a 2400 pound tongue weight rating, and a 21000 pound gross trailer weight rating.Now on the 2 inch variety, we have 2 series. You're going to have the 1200 series, which is off set, meaning the shank is going to be in the middle of the system. That's going to always give you, regardless of the drop you pick, a 2 1/2 inch rise. It's going to give you a level position, or even with the shank. Then you're going to have a 2 1/2 inch drop, 5 inches of drop, and 7 inches of drop.Now the 1400 series is going to be for the guys that have really tall lifts on their truck.

Instead of it being off set bringing the system up, it is actually swung under. So from the receiver tube opening on your truck, the top opening here is going to be 5 inches lower, and then it's going to go at 2 1/2 inch increments. You can pick from the 12 1/2, the 15 inch, or the total of 17 1/2 inches of drop, which would give you a 6 receiver tube opening down here.Now for the drops that exceed 12 inches, so the entire 1400 series, the stabilization kit is going to be provided to stiffen everything up and keep you hauling safely.Now the biggest difference we're going to have on the 2 1/2 inch series, as compared to the 2 inch series, is going to be the drops. The 1300 series, which is the off set, has a 3 inch rise, a zero, a 3 inch drop, a 6 inch drop. This is going to be available all the way through 9 and 12 inches. When we go to the 1500 series, it's immediately going to start with a 6 inch drop, and that can go all the way down to 21 depending on the amount of receiver tube openings you require. And just like the 1400 series, the 2500 series will have the stabilization system included.Now each of our torsion style hitches are going to have the dual ball set up. It gives us a 2 and 5 1/16ths inch ball on top, and a 2 inch ball on the bottom. Now this is a solid shank material, and you can see there's a hole that's been drilled through the middle of it here, that's for use with the inch and 7/8ths add on ball if you decide you have a need for it.Now on each of the series of hitches, they're going to come equipped with two pins. One for our clevis lock here, and one for the ball mount. The one for the actual pinning it to the truck, you'll have to provide. That part number if you want it to match, would be 325-GH-096.One thing I'll add there, is that if you're not going to be using a clevis hook style trailer, you can simply remove the clevis holder here and use that pin in the back of your truck.Now these are very desirable hitches, and you don't want yours to disappear. So if you'd rather everything in position, part number RH5-XL, is going to give you plenty of length to be able to go through there. And if you decided to get three, you could get them all keyed alike, so one key would operate the entire hitch.I like the unique design of the clips, basically you'll have to rotate it to pull it out. So we won't have to worry about these accidentally coming out.Now each of our pins are going to be 5/8ths of an inch in diameter. You'll see the end has been milled, so it gives you a really nice area to hold onto. And the hole here on the end, our clip is going to slide into.Now when using the pintle hook style set up, you want to be sure you're using the 2 and 5/16ths inch ball, and that you've got your keeper. So you just want to pull that pin. We're going to slide that forward. You're going to slide it all the way until your pinhole lines up, and re-secure it with your clip. That's going to keep everything nice and secure, and we're safe and ready for travel once you hook up your electronics and your chains.Now the hitch itself is going to have an extremely durable hammered finish powder coat, gives it a really nice look and a little bit of a silver and gray touch to it. All of our working components, like our pintle keeper and our balls, going to have a black powder coat finish.Now as the torsion system flexes, we've got pins here on the top and bottom that are going to rotate. You can see Gen-Y has added a grease circ there, to make keeping those lubricated very easy. It's going to extend the life and improve the operation of our hitch.Now to help maintain safety, each of our Gen-Y hitches has a built in scale. On the 16000 pound version, it's going to have a 1700 pound tongue weight scale. On the 21000 it's going to be 2400.Now this is adjustable, and periodically you will want to make sure it's centered with no load on the ball.Now for adjusting the scale, you'll need a Phillips screwdriver. You just want to loosen the Phillips screw, and you want to align the center point with the white line marked on our hitch. Once that's set, you're going to tighten that back down to hold it's position. The smaller point here will be 850 pounds worth of tongue weight. The larger point will be all the way at our max of 1700, or 1200 on the 21000 pound version and 2400.Now these heavy duty applications, having the appropriate tongue weight is going to be important for safety. It's going to prevent the trailer sway, or overloading on our truck.Now since we've had the Gen-Y torsion flex hitch out in the field, they've made some nice upgrades to it. We'd like to go over those with you.To start with, they're now offering a 3 inch by 3 inch shank, this is to keep up with the newer trucks that have those larger receiver tube openings. You'll notice they have both size pinholes that those 3 inch can come with as well, you've got the 5/8ths and then the one slightly larger.And of course just like the 2 and 2 1/2 inch to maintain the strongest possible setup, we're going to have a full solid steel shank.Another thing they've added that I really really like, our hitch originally when it came out these would move a little bit, just generates a little bit of noise and most of us are probably very used to that with having items on our hitch, but you'll notice on each of the receiver tube openings, there's now a threaded hole. This is a very welcome edition. By using a 3/8ths wrench, we're able to snug those up and you're going to eliminate any of that play. So it'll go from this having a slight bit of movement, which really wasn't a terribly big deal, to now being able to completely eliminate that.Now those set screws aren't just something you're going to see on the 3 inch version, it goes to the full run of the torsion flex hitch, whether it's the 2, 2 1/2 inch, or 3.So regardless of whether you're hauling the heavier equipment trailers, you got a big horse trailer or camper, there's going to be a Gen-Y torsion flex hitch available that'll make you're towing duties safer and easier.

First impression massive, heavy Built Stout. My truck is always hooked to a trailer so I figured I would try a nicer set up I was using the B&W which is great for the average Joe that just needs to pull a trailer every now and then but this is a whole new world first trailer I pulled with It I could feel the difference right away it was smoother the vibrations and harsh thump feelings that I would normally get when pulling the trailers when I hit rough roads or bumps was not as bad or gone. It definitely made a huge difference super easy to move height if needed and an added bonus I didn’t think of is that it pushes the trailer back further so you can get a little tighter turning when backing up if needed and i can open the tailgate and it won’t hit the jack on the trailer. On top of that when people see it it’s a conversation starter There are not many of these out there so they are intrigued by the size and how it works. Bottom line in my opinion if you’re towing all the time it is worth the investment. I would invest in another. 771262

I received my torsion hitch as promised from etrailer. The hitch is built with quality And very simple to install. I will be using it for the first time in a coupe of days. 658671

- 325-GH-1224

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

- 325-GH-1224

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 Stacked Receiver Torsion Drop Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

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

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 Stacked Receiver Torsion Drop Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

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 Stacked Receiver Torsion Drop Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

This is one of the greatest products ever made! I cannot feel the trailer bouncing up and down every time I hit a bump on the highway while trailering my boat. Yes the hitch is heavy but that is also the reason why it works so well. My only suggestion would be that with the 10K pound hitch there needs to be a 2.5 inch receiver not a 2 since all 2500 trucks now are using the 2.5 receiver. 792592

My brother and my son recommended this to me. I got to ride along with my son as he hauled a 10,000 lb. camper. Wow! I couldn’t believe the difference it made in the ride! The ride was so much smoother not to mention the wear and tear it saves on the tow vehicle! I’m impressed with the service from etrailer also. The package arrived in great condition, everything was there, and it even came a day earlier than expected! I highly recommend them!!! 787327

Review from a similar Stacked Receiver Torsion Drop Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

This receiver hitch is amazing. Most of all, I appreciate the safety, performance and limited wear and tear it provides to my family and the truck. One thoughtful suggestion, would be to include the lifetime warranty for the hitch rather than having to pay additional for it. Unfortunately, did not purchase the warranty in faith that our USA built product will not need any repair. Thanks again! 734661

Review from a similar Stacked Receiver Torsion Drop Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

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 Stacked Receiver Torsion Drop Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

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

    It is correct that for each of the Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mounts that we carry, such as # 325-GH-1224, the minimum tongue weight needs to be 1,200 lbs. Unfortunately there isn't a ball mount with shock absorption which will work for your tongue weight, but I do recommend checking out the Solid-Tow Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # DTSTBM6400. This uses a self-tensioning, anti-rattle system to stop rattling and movement in the hitch of your 2017 Ford F-250. It has a 4" drop or 5" rise and comes with...

  • GEN-Y Cushioned Ball Mount Recommendation that Fits 3 inch Trailer Hitch
    Yes, we do have a cushioned Gen-Y adjustable ball mount that fits a 3 inch hitch. For that you'd want the Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers # 325-GH-1824. This has a 21k capacity, can do a drop of up to 6 inches and fits the 3 inch hitch size.

  • 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...

  • Is There a Tongue Weight Range for Gen-Y Torsion Adjustable Ball Mounts
    There are ideal tongue weight ranges for the Gen-Y Torsion ball mounts like the part # 325-GH-1224. If you tow a trailer with too low of a tongue weight the torsion spring won't flex as much so the ride quality wouldn't be as ideal. The part # 325-GH-1224 is for tongue weights higher than 1,000 lbs but less than 1,700 whereas the part # 325-GH-1024 (same in every other way) is for tongue weights between 500 and 1,100 lbs. Sounds like your tongue weight is 1,200 lbs which for that you'd...

  • Recommended Gen-Y Ball Mount and Weight Distribution System for Trailer with 7,700 lb GVWR
    The Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2" Hitch - 5" Drop/Rise # 325-GH-1224 is a great option for a smooth ride when towing. If you are wanting to use it with a weight distribution system it will work together, but that will give you two moving parts which may not give you the feel you are looking for. You would be better off using the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2" Hitch - 5" Drop/Rise - 10K # 325-GH-414 with a weight distribution system or using...

  • Electric Brake Trailer Sway Control When Using Gen-Y 16K Torsion Hitch
    The Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers # 325-GH-1224 does allow you to use a weight distribution system with integrated sway control if desired. You would determine your weight distribution system based on the total tongue weight which is the loaded trailer tongue weight plus any cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. That combination ideally would fall in the middle range of the weight distribution systems total tongue weight range. Your other option is to...

  • What is Weight of Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2" Hitch # 325-GH-1224
    The Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2" Hitch # 325-GH-1224 that you referenced weighs 84 lbs. I'd recommend getting help to install it if that's too much weight for you to lift without over straining.

  • Recommended Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount for 4 Place Snowmobile Trailer
    The Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers # 325-GH-1224 is built very strong but it will be a really nice benefit to towing your heavy snowmobile trailer. It will absorb the shock and allow you to have a smooth ride. It is rated much higher than you 6,000 lb max trailer, but it will do exactly what you are hoping in taking the brunt of rough roads and pot holes versus transferring it directly to your truck frame. This is a heavy adapter, but we have had very positive reviews...

  • Gen-Y Torsion Ball Mount for a 2017 Ford F-250
    The Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount # 325-GH-1324 is a beast. If your 2017 Ford F-250 has a 2-1/2 inch receiver opening then you will not be disappointed with this ball mount. If you want something that isn't going to break then you will not be disappointed. If you want to be the envy of all your friends then you won't be disappointed. If there is a tougher ball mount out there I haven't seen it. If your truck has a 2 inch receiver opening then I recommend going with # 325-GH-1224. It has...

  • Recommended Adjustable Ball Mount for 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
    For your 2 inch trailer hitch, there are many adjustable ball mount options. The # LTB6-2 has the dual ball mount platform and the # WS6-2 has the single ball with the integrated scale. The shank and locks on these are identical. The # AM3410 and the # AM3405 are also nearly identical with the greaseless ball being the only difference. This simply has a coating for slightly less friction noise. We don't carry the other options you mentioned so I can't really give you an accurate...

  • Can the Super Titan 4000 be Installed without the Spacer Plates?
    When installing the Reese Super Titan # 38208 the spacer plates are optional and should be used as needed; the spacer tubes contribute to the structural integrity of the installed hitch, so you will need to make sure they are mounted inside the frame channels. If you're looking for something that provides you a number of different mounting locations for a ball mount, you may want to consider a traditional hitch and a Gen-Y Ball Mount like the # 325-GH-1224; Gen-Y makes ball mounts for...
