  • 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 4 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 4 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 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.


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 Review of Gen-Y Hitch Trailer Hitch Ball Mount - Adjustable Ball Mount - 325-GH-1824

Jeff: Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're going to take a look at this Gen-Y Torsion Two Ball Mount with the stacked receivers for a three-inch hitch, and has a 21,000 pound gross towing weight capacity. Now this is an adjustable ball mount that lets you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank portion right back here is what will slide into your hitch receiver on your vehicle. It does include a two inch diameter ball, a two and five sixteenths ball, and this pin to lock that can be paired with the ball. And these will provide connection points for your trailer coupler.

The four stacked two and a half inch receiver openings here will accept the included ball mount and pin to lock, as well as other hitch mounted accessories.It will offer a maximum drop of six inches, our maximum rise of six inches. And just to show you this pin to lock, you can see it's locked into place. This is used if you're going to use a lunette ring, if you're not using it, you can just slide it back and actually pin it, also, and it'll lock it, and then you can use this with a regular trailer coupler. To use it with a lunette ring, you can slide the lunette ring on there, slide the pin to lock forward, pin it in place, and then you're ready to go.Now the other way you could use it. Let me go ahead and put the pin back in here.

If you want to move the, just to show you how to move the balls, you can pull the pin out just like that, slide the ball mount out, and you can flip it over if you want to use the two inch ball, or if you'd want to put it in the higher position and then pin it into place. So you just adjust it, whatever height you need. We're going to put back into its original position here. Put the pin back through there.Put the clip on there. And we'll go ahead and let's slide the pin to lock out just so you can see it, but the pin back in there, and put the clip on that.

Now this is a shock absorbing design, ensures a nice smooth, steady ride. The technology will function just like a Torsion axle, right here and right here will be like a Torsion axle, helps limit the transfer of road shock from the trailer to your vehicle and vice versa. So you don't need any airbags to maintain or fewer moving parts. It gives you a few moving parts to repair, replace, and a lot of your other shock absorbing solutions. We showed you the adjustable height.

That'll let you tow trailers of different heights with the same vehicle. You just dropped that ball mount lower or raise it higher to match your application. Now I do want to spin around here and zoom in so we can talk about the tongue weight scale.If you can see that. Has a scale right here and then a white mark right here. And also if you flip it over, in the rise, there's another one right down at the very bottom, but I want to talk about it. Basically. This tongue weight scale that's built in, helps you balance your trailer. It'll feature the built-in mechanical tongue weight scale. It'll let you know if your load needs to be adjusted before you tow. Basically, the highest arrow will indicate no tongue weight, zero pounds. The lowest arrow on the scale indicates the mount's maximum tongue weight, which is 2,400 pounds. And there must be a minimum tongue weight of 1600 pounds for this built-in shock absorbing system to work. So that means your tongue weight scales white mark, which is right here, you see that white mark. That means must be between the lowest arrow and the middle arrow when you hook up for your trailer to tow.Zoom back out. This is a heavy duty steel construction, has a nice sink primer powder coat finish, helps resist corrosion. Now, when you do install this into your three inch hitch receiver it will require a hitch pin and clip or hitch lock for securing it to the receiver. Those are not included. You would have to supply those, or we do sell those separately on our website. Basically, if you notice, there's two different size holes here, the hole right here in the front is the five eighths inch diameter. The larger one right behind it is the three quarter inch diameter hole. This is SAEJ 684 certified. It is made in the USA.As we mentioned, it's designed to fit three inch by three inch trailer hitch receivers. Now, what will limit you on the capacity will be the ball size that you use. If you use the two and five sixteenths diameter, the larger one here, it's stamped on the top, your gross towing weight capacity will be 21,000 pounds. Maximum tongue weight will be 2,400 pounds. If you use the smaller two inch diameter ball, gross towing weight capacity is 16,000 pounds. Maximum tongue weight will be 1500 pounds. But that should do it for the review on the Gen-y Torsion Two Ball Mount with the stacked receivers for three inch hitch and a 21,000 pound gross towing weight capacity.

Review from a similar Mega Torsion Ball Mount 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).

Review from a similar Mega Torsion Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Best improvement I've made on this toterhome pulling 20K trailer. because of the way this 13'4" tall trailer used to porpoise hard on bad roads, loud banging shock loads on the hitch, I constantly feared structural failure. Now I don't hear or feel the trailer at all!!. Smooth.
