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 8 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.


With the 8 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. This heavy-duty mount is built with a 1,500-lb tongue weight, so you can even use multiple hitch accessories at the same time, as long as there are no clearance issues. This means that you can use your hitch-mounted bike rack to haul your bikes while also flat towing your vehicle.

Video Transcript for Gen-Y Stacked Receivers Adjustable 2-Ball Mount Review

Hey, everybody, how's it going Today, we're gonna be going over the line of Gen-Y adjustable ball mounts with stacked receivers. An adjustable ball mount is really gonna be best because we can change the hitch ball height for multiple trailers. So whether you only have one trailer right now or you do have multiple trailers, I do recommend adjustable just because it leaves you with a wide range of compatibility. If you switch trailers, you get a second trailer, I just recommend these in general over the fixed because overall, down the line, it is gonna save you money. So this particular ball mount here is offered in a ton of different variations. The first one comes down to hitch size compatibility.

Now, the model we have pictured here today is just the standard 2-inch, which is gonna be the most widely compatible with your half-ton trucks, but if you have a larger 3/4-ton or 1-ton truck, this ball mount is also offered in 2 1/2-inch and 3-inch hitch configurations. So one of the main features of this ball mount and how it's gonna set itself apart from some of the other options on there is the stacked receiver design. So this is great for a number of different reasons. Number one, let's say we wanted to tow a trailer and haul a bike rack. We could certainly do so because we would just have to have the ball mount in the lower hole and then our bike rack or other accessories, such as a cargo carrier in the top one.

So it's really gonna allow for a wide range of accessories to be used. I know some people use these on their motor home as a high-low adapter to get your towbar nice and level and there's also options that have offset receivers. So one of these stacked receivers is above the shank and that's gonna be great for those people with ground clearance issues. So there's all different kinds of things you can do with these. They're very versatile.

They work great for pretty much everything. So in regards to that adjustability, there's really a wide range of options. We have the standard 5-inch drop version, which is what you see here. You can also invert this to use it in a rise for 5 inches of rise all the way down to 17 1/2 inches of drop or rise. So really, no matter what truck and trailer combo you have, there is gonna be an option to get everything nice and level.

Now, if you're not sure how to measure for your rise and drop, this is actually very simple. On the vehicle side here, we wanna make sure we're parked on a nice level surface. We just simply measure from the ground to the top inside edge of the receiver tube and then we compare that to the measurement on the trailer from the ground to the bottom of the coupler while that trailer is level. Now, the difference between those two measurements is gonna let you know what your rise and drop requirements are. Now, keep in mind, a lotta guys like to think that, "Oh, I'll just get something with a ton of rise and drop. That way, it's gonna cover me no matter what truck and trailer I have," but unfortunately, that's really not the best option. You want something that's gonna cover you by a few inches, but you don't wanna go too far because you'll see that you're gonna run into ground clearance issues due to the stacked receiver design. You can see this is a half-ton truck. I do have it lifted a little bit. This is a 5-inch drop version and there's plenty of clearance here, but I really wouldn't go much more. So you wanna make sure that you're covered for all your trailers, but you don't wanna go too far 'cause then you'll run into issues with ground clearance. So we're also gonna get a wide range of weight capacity. So this particular one is a 16K. This is a great middle-of-the-road option. If you don't need that extra capacity, you can save some money, go down to the 10K, but it's also offered into a capacity up to 32,000 pounds. So no matter how light or how heavy your trailer is, there's gonna be an option for you. So with all of our ball mount configurations, we're gonna get two included hitch ball sizes. A smaller 2-inch and the larger 2 5/16. When we need to flip sizes, it's very easy. We have a pin clip on the side here. Simply pull that out, pull out the pin, and then we can just flip this around. Line everything up. Reinstall our pin and clip, and now we've successfully changed hitch sizes. Now, if we wanna go one step further, how easy it is to adjust the rise and drop 'cause we mentioned earlier there's a wide range here that this offers. All we do is just simply move this up or down into the respective stacked receivers depending on your rise and drop needs. So our current configuration is gonna be designed for trailers that have a 2-inch or a 2 5/16-inch trailer coupler, but there's also an option out there that it comes with a pencil hook if you have one of those ag trailers or industrial trailers with a lunette ring. So one of the reasons that I really like Gen-Y, it's not only that they have all these great features built in, but they also do a really good job of making their products durable and look great. So I really personally like the hammer powder-coated finish that they use here. It's got specs of black and silver in there and it does look great if you ask me, but it's also very, very durable. Ball mounts are certainly one of the more abused items because we're banging other metal components in them, such as the trailer coupler. So keeping our ball mount looking nice and new, it's not only gonna look great, it's also gonna help protect the metal underneath from rest and corrosion and the actual hitch ball assembly here has a nice matte finish. So overall, it looks great and it's gonna be super durable. So in regards to what comes with your adjustable ball mount, you're gonna get the main portion here known as a stacked receiver and you're also gonna get a two hitch ball, that 2-inch and 2 5/16, and you're also going to get a pin here that's gonna secure the hitch ball to the stacked receiver. What you don't get is a hitch pin and clip, which secures it to the vehicle. Now, you could just buy a standard one like we have here. These are pretty cost-effective. You would need to pick one of those up, but what I highly recommend, I like going with a locking hitch pin. That way, you don't have to worry about someone coming up and taking off with your expensive ball mount. Here is the locking hitch pin that I use. There's many like it, all different kinds of designs. This is one made by Bolt, we carry this and this actually uses your vehicle's ignition key to lock and unlock so you don't have to worry about carrying a spare set of keys. Now, this isn't available for every vehicle, but most of your major trucks out there are gonna have this option. I do like this a lot and I recommend it, but again, there's plenty of locking options out there. The main goal is just to provide security of our ball mount. So there is one downside to this ball mount here and it's pretty minor, but that's that it's heavy and that's how it maintains the weight capacities that it does. As we said, these are rated up to 32K for select models. So in order to retain that high of a capacity, you do have to add a lot of metal, which is going to add weight to it. Now, granted this isn't something that most people are gonna constantly be removing and installing on their vehicle, but if for one reason or another, you do need to do that, I know a lotta people just leave these on at all times, even when they're not towing, it is gonna be a little bit hard to get on and off just due to the sheer weight of them. This is actually the 2-inch version with the 5-inch drop. So this is kind of like the bread and butter of their line here. This is gonna be the most standard and common one and even this one is still pretty heavy. Go ahead and remove it here. It's not unmanageable for one person by any means, but it does have some weight to it. So just take that into consideration for your purchase and that's gonna do it today for our look at the line of Gen-Y adjustable ball mounts with stacked receivers..

Best hitch on the market by far.

Just received my 17 1/2 drop hitch and extremely happy

Bada$$!! Good looking piece and very heavy duty!

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:

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:

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:

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:

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:

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:

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:

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:

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



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:

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:

Great production quality and super fast delivery from etrailer!



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:

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



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:

Part came as advertised. I was most impressed with the customer service. Quinn F was insanely helpful and thorough. Really made this process easy.



by:

This hitch is massive . Very heavy duty. I like how easy it is to change out for different trailers.



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.
