mount diagram

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 red section on the top of the scale indicates your maximum tongue weight (1,700 lbs). The red section on the bottom of the scale indicates no tongue weight (0 lbs). A tongue weight of at least 1,200 lbs is recommended for the built-in shock absorption to function effectively. This means that the scale's white indicator marker should be in the green section when you hook up your trailer to tow.

The order process was smooth. But, when trying to find out about the the lifetime warranty offered by Gen Y on the rubber components in the hitch Nicole could not answer my question.

I asked if I was able to purchase through you and if not could I purchase from Gen Y even though I bought the hitch from you.

This is something customer service should know the answer too.
You would have gotten five stars but it was ruined by lack of knowledge by your staff.

While we would love to be able every question right away sometimes, we need to do a little research. I reached out to Gen-Y about the rubber bushings. The bushings are not available separately, however the warranty does cover the replacement from normal wear and tear. If they need to be replaced, then the ball mount can be returned to Gen-Y to have new bushings pressed in. If you have any other questions or concerns, please let us know.



by:

Awesome hitch, the tongue weight scale is the cheesiest thing I've ever seen on a product with this price point- a sticker that was peeling up when I received it and a little white paint mark that wiped away when I used an alcohol wipe to clean it before covering with super glue to try and make it hold up past the first rain event. Come on Gen Y your engineers can surely come up with something better that will actually last for years. You got the hitch down, now just focus on the details.



by:

Solid 6” drop hitch that is extremely heavy but well made. Very smooth with bigger loads. Required some modification to my Fab Four bumper for proper fit. I gave it four stars because my hitch didn’t have the set screw option as advertised.

03 Duramax 2500hd with six inch lift, 35” tires
16000lb Curtis receiver (well made five stars)



by:

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!!!



by:

Solid product! etrailer sent this heavy item very quickly and I will look to do business with them again.



by:

Product is as advertised, arrived on time. For an item of this weight, the packaging was great, no damage.

anyways thus far it's a #5 I haven't really used it but I will sooner than later. Your hitch is on this bad boy!! Thank you for considering my 2020 Ford Velocity Blue F350 Lariat Special addition!!!



by:

It is a strong hitch. If you leave it in your receiver plan on it rusting even with the coating that it has on it. The coating on the ball with most cases need to be scraped off before your hitch will even fit over it so that will rust right away as they normally do. Was hoping the rest of it would look a little better after one year.



by:

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.



by:

Built like a brick s@%thouse. Works great! Keep in mind I use this for pulling same trailer loaded same way every day. I could figure out optimal hitch weight and keep it there



by:

Worth the money if you are pulling heavy loads.fit and finish it top quality.



by:

Quality product. Very Robust. I bought this hoping to dampen some of the shock my truck, which is about 15,000 lbs, transmits to my boat, which is about 8500 lbs, thinking it may help with the boat's longevity. It helps with big shocks for sure, but the hitch needs to be in the top 2/3rds of its rated capacity to noticeably dampen the shock between your trailer and tow rig. It works wonders on my loaded dump trailer.



by:

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!



by:

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.



by:

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!



by:

works great, heavy duty, good investment



by:

Great service. I made a mistake and ordered the wrong item. I was bummed there was a restocking fee but it was my mistake so I cant be to mad. They were very responsive on correcting the order. Hitch definitely seems super well built.



by:

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.



by:

Great hitch. Just makes my safety chains to short.

Excellent Quality, better driving while you with trailer and Made in USA.
I love it
Thanks to the company

  • Does Gen-Y Torsion Ball Mount Have Anti-Sway Features
    The Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount part # 325-GH-1225 does not have any sway reduction features built into it. It's designed to give you an adjustable height ball mount setup with the two most popular hitch ball sizes and is also cushioned really well. Many customers also report a slight increase in fuel mileage too since the cushioning is so effective.

  • 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.

    Great choice for a heavy-duty hitch!

  • How Does Cushioning of Gen-Y Torsion Weight Distribution Shank Work with Spring Bar Tension
    That's a really good question, but basically the cushioning movement of the Gen-Y cushioned weight distribution shanks like the part # 325-GH-1202 for a 2 inch hitch or part # 325-GH-1302 for a 2-1/2 inch hitch moves straight up and down and since the weight distribution spring bar tension is more like a fulcrum and "twists" for lack of a better term they both end up function just fine together. That's the simple answer at least.

  • 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...

It has 5 stacked 2" hitch receivers that can accommodate almost any hitch accessory. When you do use this though, I recommend picking up extra goodies like extra hitch pin locks # 34061650-D and anti-rattle clamps #GY88XR.
