This unique adjustable ball mount from Gen-Y Hitch has a vertical shank that is made up of 6 stacked 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

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.


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

This mount features a built-in mechanical tongue weight scale. The red section on the top of the scale indicates your maximum tongue weight (1,100 lbs). The red section on the bottom of the scale indicates no tongue weight (0 lbs). A tongue weight of at least 400 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.

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

Hey guys. Today we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the line of GEN-Y adjustable two ball mounts for two and a half inch hitch receivers. So our GEN-Y ball mount here, this line in particular is going to be specifically designed for the larger three quarter and one ton trucks that have a two and a half inch by two and a half inch receiver tube. Now all these trucks are going to come with an adapter that will allow us to use our two inch ball mount with the two and a half inch receiver tube on our truck. However, as you'll come to notice shortly, this really creates a lot of rattle for adding an additional point of contact in there. It makes things very loose, and you're definitely going to be hearing it.With this solid two-inch shank, we're not going to have any of those issues with that excess rattling.

We're going to have a nice and tight fit inside the receiver tube here. We don't have to worry about any additional adapters. So we talked a little bit about the range of adjustment that the GEN-Y offers here for the two and a half inch ball mounts. The reason you're going to be interested in an adjustable ball mount is typically for people who have more than one trailer. So normally you'd measure your rise and drop from your truck and your trailer, and you need to pick a ball mount that meets that exact need, but that's only going to cover you for one trailer.

If you're towing multiple trailers, your rise and drop requirements are likely going to change for each trailer. Therefore, having adjustable ball mounts allows you to accommodate multiple trailers without having multiple ball mounts.So with our stacked receivers here, we're obviously going to get the adjustability we need for our trailer. But something else you can do is, you can actually tow with one of the lower two stacked receivers here, and you can put a bike rack in the top one here. So if we're really trying to load up, head out for the campsite, hit the trails, we're going to be able to attach a bike rack in here, into our trailer at the same time. There's also options that have a little bit of an offset, meaning the stacked receiver tube.

There's going to be one above the actual hitch on the vehicle. That'll be somewhere in this area and that'll give you a little bit more clearance here so we can still tow level and get our bike rack in place. So something I personally really like about the GEN-Y adjustable ball mounts is their finish.Now there's not really many other adjustable ball mounts on the market that have this nice of a finish. It's going to be super durable. You can really bang it up, throw this thing in and out of your truck bed without having to worry about nicking that coating.

It has a nice two-tone hammered finish with some black and silver speckles. It looks really nice and it's going to hold up for time to come. So if you have a super, super heavy trailer, you're really maxing out the towing capacity of your vehicle. And you're worried about the weight capacity of your ball mount, you shouldn't be for any of the GEN-Y line. They're extremely overbuilt made of heavy duty steel. This particular model here has a 21,000 pound weight capacity. However, there are options for weight capacity up to 32,000 pounds. So something else I'm sure you guys can appreciate is that GEN-Y products, the adjustable ball mounts, are made right here in the USA. So you know that you're getting a quality, well-made product.So let's talk about hitch pins now. With our kit here, we're going to get two hitch pins. And this may or may not be enough for you to use straight out of the box. If you have a trailer with a lunette ring, and we're going to need to use this pintle lock here, you'll actually need an extra hitch pin because we'll need one for the ball, one for the pintle lock and one for the trailer hitch receiver. If we're just going to be towing a regular trailer here, then we'll have enough hitch pins to cover us. We'll have one for the ball and then one for the hitch here. However, I'm definitely going to recommend with such a nice inexpensive ball mount to obtain locking hitch pins. You can just simply get one that'll secure the ball mount inside the trailer hitch, or you can get a matching set here that'll match all of your locks for the trailer hitch, the ball mount and even the pintle lock.So with our kit here, we're going to get a number of different things. The first thing we're going to talk about here is we have our stacked receivers. The next thing we're going to have is our two ball mount, which comes with both a two inch and a two and five 16th inch hitch ball. We're going to have next is our pintle lock. Then finally, we're going to have two hitch pin and clips. So to get everything into position, we're going to first start by taking our stacked receiver here. We're going to lift this up and then we're going to insert it into the trailer hitch on our truck here. Keep in mind we have two hitch pin holes here, depending on how much clearance we need. That first hitch pin hole here is going to line up perfectly. The other one we'll be able to use as well. Now, ideally we want as much of the shank inside the receiver tube as possible. So if we can get to that second hitch pin hole, that's the one we should use. Now we'll take our hitch pin here. We'll insert it into place. And then we'll follow this up with one of our clips.Now we'll take our two hitch ball assembly here, and we'll insert this into one of the stacked receivers here on our ball mount. The one that we are going to insert it to is going to depend on which trailer we're towing. We'll need to measure beforehand to make sure that we get the correct spot. In order to take these measurements, we're going to come to the truck side. We'll measure from the ground to the top inside edge of the trailer hitch opening, and then we'll compare that measurement to our trailer while it's leveled. We'll measure from the ground to the bottom of the edge on our coupler. Now, if the truck is going to be higher than the coupler, the difference between the two means we're going to need a drop. If the truck is lower than the coupler on the trailer, that means we're going to need a rise.So this particular model that we have here with the four stacked receivers, this is going to offer a nine inch drop. There's also other options as well that'll cut the drop down to six inches or extended all the way to 15 inches. Now we want something that's going to be a good range here no matter what trailer we're towing. We don't want to get a super long drop if our truck doesn't sit that high, because then we could run into ground clearance issues. This is probably good for this truck. This is a nine inch drop. So this will give us a wide range of trailers. Really, no matter how high or how low they sit, we should be able to tow them level, no matter the height here with this nine inch drop. But again, I definitely recommend you verifying your measurements beforehand so you can make sure you choose the appropriate rise/drop for your ball mount.So now we can go ahead and insert our hitch ball assembly, making sure that we're choosing the appropriate hitch ball size. We have two inches here, two and five sixteenths inches here. So we'll make sure we have the correct one. And then we can insert it into one of the four stacked receivers. Now, granted, the number of stacked receivers you have is going to vary depending on which particular model you have, but you want to go ahead and take those measurements first so you know which one to stick it in. We'll just use this one for example. So we'll push it all the way through. And so we line up our hitch pin holes. Once we've done that, we'll stick our hitch pin through, follow that up with our clip. So if our trailer had a lunette ring on it, we'd want to install our pintle lock as well. And this is pretty easy. We'd simply slide it into the receiver tube above our hitch ball assembly here, and then secure it with one of our locking pins. For this particular trailer we're going to be hooking up to, it doesn't have a lunette ring. We just have a standard coupler so we won't be using this.So now that we have everything set up, we're ready to go ahead and hitch up to our trailer. Now we're ready to hit the road. So in summary, the GEN-Y adjustable ball mount line, they're excellent options for anybody looking to tow heavy trailers. They're going to be particularly useful for those guys who really want to load as much stuff as possible. They want to tow their trailer, but they also want to have their bike rack attached for the family. Or if you're towing agricultural trailers and you have trailers with the lunette rings on there this is, again, going to be an excellent option because it comes with the included pintle lock. And that's going to do it today, guys, for our look at the GEN-Y adjustable two ball mounts for two and a half inch hitches..

I did my research before ordering. I know exactly what I need and want. My boat trailer tongue weight is 750lbs so I went with the Gen-Y Torsion Flex 2" Hitch - 7.5" Drop/Rise 10k. (Works Best with 400-1,000lbs tongue weight). Also got the BEST price due to their 110% Price Match Guarantee.

Bought this hitch a year ago for my new car hauler trailer. I used a standard hard hitch for a few months before deciding to bite the bullet and purchase this hitch. This completely eliminated the hard bumping the trailer would give the truck on some of the rough roads in Missouri

Wish it came with 2 locking pins instead, even if it cost more. Makes a difference pulling equipment or dump trailers full of dirt or concrete. Almost dropped a star because all the attention it gets.

Review from a similar Torsion Ball Mount 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.


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 Torsion Ball Mount 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.

It works great. Highly recommend, but beware of two things: price and weight. It’s not cheap, and it weighs roughly 90 pounds. Tows like a champ. The ride is so much smoother while towing.

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


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.

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


This hitch is a beast. You will not need any more hitches; last you will buy. When received the packaging was a little damaged. I suspect this is due to the overall weight. I figure the hitch alone is about 75-80 pounds. I tow trailers almost every weekend. My enclosed car trailer weighs in at about 10K pounds. My Ram 3500 DRW would buck slightly due to all the road construction. First tow was for about 160 miles. Not once did I feel any push or bucking. If you tow a lot, this is your hitch. Little pricey but worth it.

This receiver hitch is amazing. Most of all, I appreciate the safety, performance and limited wear and tear it provides to my family and the truck. One thoughtful suggestion, would be to include the lifetime warranty for the hitch rather than having to pay additional for it. Unfortunately, did not purchase the warranty in faith that our USA built product will not need any repair. Thanks again!
