Is this right for you? Product Expert Alexander C says:

Yes, if you:

  • Tow a heavy construction trailer or dump trailer
  • Plan on towing off-road too - pintle lock can turn mount into a pintle hitch
  • Want a safe, comfortable ride

No, if you:

  • Can't lift an extremely heavy hitch
  • Want to keep your backup sensors clear and don't want to buy longer safety chains
  • Don't tow big loads often - shock absorption only works on heavier weights
Insert this shock-absorbing, adjustable mount into your hitch to get 5 stacked 2-1/2" receivers. Flexing rubber cords limit shock. Tongue weight scale shows if load needs to be adjusted. 2" Ball, 2-5/16" ball, and pintle hook included. Lowest Prices for the best trailer hitch ball mount from Gen-Y Hitch.

This unique adjustable ball mount from Gen-Y Hitch has a vertical shank that is made up of 5 stacked 2-1/2" receivers. 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.


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.

Great product Takes away the jerking sensations of speed bumps and the occasional pothole. When you do hit a bump at speed it takes a while for the flexing to settle back into a smooth ride. I equate the feeling like being in a boat. Now that I’m used to it it’s hardly noticeable. 803273

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

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


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 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


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

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

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 bought the hitch because I frequently tow my 24 foot toyhauler down some pretty rough stretches of interstate highway. Its the kind of highway that when a trailer is attached to your truck, it drives the tow vehicle up and down like a fast yo-yo. I think the hitch helps a little but not nearly as much as I had hoped. 853513

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

  • Recommended Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount for 2017 Ram 5500
    To answer your question about the optimal ride tongue weight, our ranges are referring to use with the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball while the Gen-Y website does not differentiate, hence the slight difference in ranges. Since you mentioned that you can't see yourself ever having a bumper pull trailer exceeding 16,000 lbs, and you said you will be able to ensure a tongue weight of around 1,400 lb to 1,500 lbs I recommend going with the Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount - 16K # 325-GH-1125 because...

  • Can Weight Distribution Hitch Be Used in Gen-Y Stacked Torsion Receiver 325-GH-1325
    Yes, you can use a weight distribution hitch system in one of the Gen-Y Stacked Torsion Receivers like # 325-GH-1325. The Gen-Y receivers are extraordinarily solid and have a very high capacity - this one is rated for 21,000-lbs. This particular model's rubber torsion springs will perform best when the unit is loaded with tongue weight in the range of 1,600 - 2,400-lbs. Below that range the springs will not be loaded enough to deliver their maximum shock reduction. All Gen-Y 2-1/2-inch...

  • Gen-Y Torsion Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for Lifted Truck with 2-1/2 inch Hitch
    The Gen-Y Torsion adjustable ball mounts for 2-1/2 inch hitches are incredibly solid ball mount options. For a 6 inch lift on your truck you'd need one that can do a healthy amount of drop. But it really depends on how tall your trailer is going to be relative to the hitch height of the truck. We have options like the part # 325-GH-1325 which can do up to a 9 inch drop, the part # 325-GH-1326 which can do up to a 12 inch drop or the part # 325-GH-1524 which can do up to a 15 inch drop.

  • What Does the Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers # 325-GH-1325 Weigh
    Actually the Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers # 325-GH-1325 that you referenced weighs 124 lbs. This ball mount weighs so much because it has a very high weight capacity at 21,000 lbs, is adjustable and is cushioned. To pull all of that off Gen-Y had to make it pretty heavy. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • How Much Drop From Gen Y Adjustable Ball Mount is Needed for Trailer with 25 inch Tall Hitch
    We see a lot of coupler heights around the 14 to 16 inch height for smaller trailers. So for a trailer that has 25 inches from the top of the hitch opening to the ground a 9 inch drop is going to be about right. So for a Gen Y adjustable ball mount that has that much drop and fits a 2-1/2 inch hitch we have the part # 325-GH-1624 for a non cushioned ball mount or the # 325-GH-1325 for a cushioned solution.
