Multiple Stacked Receivers for Easy Adjustment

pintle hitch

This unique mount from Gen-Y Hitch includes a ball mount that can be easily positioned in one of the 6 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. 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 6 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.

Video Transcript for Review of Gen-Y Hitch Trailer Hitch Ball Mount - Adjustable Stacked 2 Ball Mount - 325-GH-226

Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a quick look at this GEN-Y adjustable two ball mount with stacked receivers. This is going to allow you to hook your trailer up to your tow vehicle. And this will slide right into your two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver on your vehicle. And then it's going to provide the two inch diameter ball and the 2 5/16 inch ball, as well as the ball paired with the pintle lock here so that you can connect to different kinds of trailer couplers, whether it's a two inch ball coupler, a 2 5/16 inch ball coupler, or a lunette ring. This will allow you to tow those different kinds of trailers.

Very easy to switch back and forth. So all you have to do is pull out the pin, flip the ball over if you are needing a different size, or you can remove the pin for your pintle lock here, and then it just slides back if you're not needing to use it so that it's out your way, like so. So, lots of different options here, so that if you're pulling different kinds of trailers you can very easily get connected to them. Now, our balls do have different weight capacities. So, for our two inch ball we're going to have a gross towing weight of 12,000 pounds, which is of course the weight of the trailer, plus the load included, and the maximum tongue weight, which is the downward pressure on the ball of 1,500 pounds.

With our 2 5/16 inch ball we're going to have a 16,000 pound gross towing weight and a 2,000 pound tongue weight. So, it is going to be very solid, give you lots of options for towing. And then of course we do have our stacked, our six stacked two inch by two inch receivers that are going to accept the included ball mount and pintle lock, as well as your other hitch mount accessories like your bike racks and those sort of things. So, once you get this installed, shouldn't have to remove it and just give you more versatility there. But the main purpose of having those stacked receivers is having the ability to adjust our height of our ball so that we can accommodate different trailers with different coupler heights, to make sure that they're gonna be riding nice and level.

And so when we have our ball in the lowest receiver opening here, the measurement from the top of our inside edge of our receiver tube down to where that coupler is gonna sit on the ball, it's gonna give us a max drop of 7 1/2 inches. We could also flip this over, use it in the rise position and that's going to give us a rise of 7 1/2 inches. So, whether your coupler sits a little bit higher than your receiver tube or a little bit lower, you've got lots of adjustability there. But you also have these two receiver tubes stacked above. So you're not gonna have to flip it over if your application sits just a little bit higher than your hitch.

And you have these options here so that, again, you can leave this hooked up to your hitch on your vehicle and just use those as they are. But if you do want that little extra height, you can flip it over and use it in the rise position as well. They do include these two 5/8 inch diameter pins and clips to hold our accessories in place. So these will work, not only for the included ball mount and pintle lock, but also your other hitch mount accessories, your bike racks and that sort of things. Just your standard 5/8 inch that works with your two inch hitches. One thing they do not include is your hitch pins to get this secured onto your vehicle's hitch. It's just your standard 5/8 inch hole there. So you can use your current pin that you probably already have for your hitch, but if you don't have one we do have lots of options available here at etrailer.com. You just need a standard 5/8 inch diameter pinning clip. And we also have locking pins available, so if you wanted to add a little extra security, make sure that no one can come along and easily take off with your ball mount. We have those available, as well. This is a nice heavy duty steel construction. So, GEN-Y does have a great reputation for building very solid, robust products. And this is no exception. It is.feel very heavy duty once you get it installed. It's gonna do a good job for you allowing you to tow those heavier loads and that sort of thing. It does have a zinc primer and powder coat finish. It's gonna help resist corrosion. Our ball and pintle lock also have a matte black finish on them to give them a nice look and help with that corrosion resistance. This is SAE J 684 certified. So you can trust it is going to hold up well, do exactly what you need it to do. And it is also made here in the USA, so you can trust it's made to the quality standards we've come to know and trust for products that are made here in the US. But also GEN-Y, that name carries a lot of reputation with it for building very solid products. And so I think you're gonna be very happy with this especially if you need that 7 1/2 inch drop for a trailer that you're towing regularly. And that's gonna give you that option. And then you can also mount your other hitch mount accessories above there and so that you can haul them all at the same time and get more out of your hitch that way. Of course, your whole setup is only gonna be as strong as your weakest component, so you wanna make sure that you're never exceeding the weight of capacity of your hitch on your vehicle, or your vehicle itself. So, this is gonna be a really nice addition to your setup giving you that adjustability so that you can make sure that your trailer's nice and level as you're towing. So, that completes our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..

Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2" Hitch - 7-1/2" Drop/Rise - 16K - 325-GH-226

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (149 Customer Reviews)

Insert this heavy-duty mount into your 2" hitch to get 6 stacked 2" receivers for mounting the included 2" ball, 2-5/16" ball, pintle hook, or other hitch-mounted accessory.

by:

Works great for towing trailers with different heights of sway bar hitches. The ability to put whatever kind of hitch you want at any height is invaluable, I will probably never have to buy a drop hitch ever again in my life, the construction on this is very stout.



by:

The hitch was perfect for the job that I was working on.95 bronco,which I mounted it at the front of vehicle so that the customer can move boats around while looking at the front windsheild.Also was able to use it at the rear of vehicle also.Perfect choice.



by:

After using it, but they standard trailer the ball hitch cracked did not know who to reach out to called you guys multiple times and no response



by:

This hitch is solid! We used it to flat-tow a Jeep behind our motorhome and use the top slot for the bike rack. It was super solid and performed perfectly during this 4500+ mile trip.



by:

I've not towed with it yet, but it's very high quality and seems way overbuilt. I like the hammered finish and the components are very nice. Once I figured out how they work, Gen-Y's 'twisting lock pin' is easier to use than a standard cotter pin and adds some piece of mind that it's not going anywhere. Love that you can store the ball mount in front of the hitch when not using it - including sideways so that it doesn't reduce ground clearance, even when in the lowest receiver. The only thing I don't like about it - which etrailer comments on in the online item description - is that it doesn't fit very snug. Combined with the 2-1/2 to 2" reducer sleeve, there's a fair amount of play. Not sure yet if this is going to create rattling when towing (that would reduce my stars). One note: based on the Gen-Y website's method for determining the appropropriate drop for my vehicle, I should have ordered the 10" drop. I did my own measuring and ordered the 7-1/2" drop instead, which works perfectly for my 2021 RAM 3500 SRW 4x4.



by:

Very heavy duty stacked receiver and dual ball. Combined with the stabilizer bars i feel safe hauling my trailers. Still able to use my other hitches with this receiver too.



by:

Has done what it is supposed to do. I have used the hitch to tow two boats over the last two years using both ball sizes. The only issue is the appearance. Saltwater creates rust and break down of the coating on the hitch. Was never dunked in salt has been effected being near saltwater. Hitch was washed with freshwater after each use in salt.

I probably wouldn’t buy again. I have seen some other hitches that can do similar adjustments that do better near saltwater environments.



by:

All in all a good set up. A lot more play in the receiver than I expected. Fair amount of rattling around without a trailer attached. In all fairness I do live in a state with poor roads.



by:

Holy crap, thing is built like a tank. Needed it to lower my front mount to accommodate a ebike rack. Worked great!



by:

You guys have always done good business. Keep up the good work.



by:

Amazing hitch will NEVER buy another! Quality craftsmanship, excellent service from etrailer!

Oh my sweet adjustable hitch from the future, where have you been all my lifted truck life?! ?? Let me tell you, this GenY adjustable hitch is like the superhero sidekick my overgrown, behemoth of a Dodge 1 ton needed to conquer the highways and byways with style, swagger, and an adjustable drop that's got me feeling like a towing wizard!

Picture this: my truck, the size of a small building, with tires that could probably qualify as a down payment for a small country. And then there's the trailer – it's like a mobile home with an identity crisis. Traditional hitches quiver in fear when they see my rig coming, but not the GenY. Nope, this hitch faces my truck's titanic drop with a grin and says, "Bring it on, buddy!"

So, what's the deal with this hitch, you ask? Well, let me break it down for you while keeping my excitement level in check (which is near impossible):

Adjustable Awesomeness: The GenY hitch doesn't just drop – it swoops, it dips, it twirls. Okay, maybe not twirls, but you get the idea. You want to tow your luxury yacht or your miniature house? Boom, this hitch adjusts to whatever mind-boggling height difference you can throw at it.

Zero Drama, All Towing Nirvana: Remember the time when towing made your truck feel like it was dragging a herd of elephants through a mud pit? Yeah, those days are over. With the GenY hitch, my Dodge struts its stuff like a runway model with a trailer in tow. Smooth as butter, I tell you. Smooth as butter!

Weightlifting Champion: I swear, I've pulled everything short of a small planet with this hitch. The GenY hitch handles weight like a pro wrestler handles dumbbells – effortlessly! No creaks, no groans, just a confident "I got this" vibe that makes me want to challenge it to a bench press competition. (Spoiler: I'd lose.)

Confidence Booster: Have you ever seen a truck hitch that oozes confidence? Well, you're about to! Every time I back up to my trailer, I can practically hear my hitch saying, "Don't worry, buddy, I've got your back!" And it does, every single time.

Conversation Starter: I can't tell you how many times people have walked by my truck and trailer combo, only to do a double-take at the hitch. It's like having a celebrity accessory for my truck. Sometimes, I feel like rolling down my window and saying, "Oh, this? It's just my GenY – no big deal!"

In conclusion, my GenY adjustable hitch is not just a hitch – it's a legendary partner in crime for my lifted Dodge adventure-mobile. If my truck could write reviews, it would probably leave an even longer, more passionate review than this. But for now, take my word for it – if you're towing with a truck that's on the verge of having its own postcode, get yourself a GenY hitch and let the good times (and the trailers) roll!



by:

This thing is a monster, going to be perfect for what I got it for, had to have a 12 inch rise for flat towing our 2021 raised Jeep wrangler. looked all over for something strong enough for the job, and this beast is perfect.



by:

Works very well. Parts surface rusted and paint chipped, but that’s to be expected.



by:

Amazing thing is a beast best hitch I’ve ever owned I’ll probably never buy another one



by:

Great product and service! Appreciativ e.



by:

Showed up on time. Needed a heavy duty hitch for my lifted super duty. Used for first time today and worked perfectly. My beaver tail landscape trailer has to towed level or it bottoms out. With this hitch no worries about towing level. Great product!



by:

Very nice, heavy duty



by:

Quality product and you can tell by the weight. I believe this will give me many years of service! Going to make sure I get it locked on.



by:

Great production quality and super fast delivery from etrailer!



by:

This item is so universal also a good deflector if you might get rear ended! Perfect fit for my 2013 Nissan Rogue. Thank you etrailer.com Very good Engineering... William



by:

Sturdy piece of equipment. Will be with me for years. Not your regular hitch, a little on the heavy side as expected since it's rated to 16k lbs towing capacity.
Doesn't come with the locking pin but at this price you might want to buy your own pin with a locking device to deter unnecessary theft.
Towed my 12k pound trailer with about a 1500 lb tongue weight without issues.



by:

No worries about overloading my hitch receiver with this bad boy. The quality seems outstanding, stainless pin with anti release pin clip. No shortcuts here.



by:

I have a three-inch lift kit on my truck, and it dropped it down to the perfect level I need to tow my car hauler trailer.



by:

Well built receiver & it got me to the perfect height for towing My Jeep LJ on 37" tires.
etrailer had everything I needed including great service & awesome installation videos.

  • Can Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter Be Used With a Tow Dolly?
    While the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter # RM-077-4 could be used with a dolly you are very limited since the entire assembly is only capable of up to 400lbs of tongue weight. A much better option is a setup like the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # 325-GH-226 as this offers a tongue weight up to 2,000lbs and the additional receivers offer more spread for additional clearance between your ball mount and a hitch mounted accessory.
