mount diagram

This unique adjustable ball mount from Gen-Y Hitch has a vertical shank that is made up of 4 stacked 2" receivers that can accept almost any hitch-mounted accessory. 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.


With the 4 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.


Easily Check Your Tongue Weight

scale

This mount features a built-in mechanical tongue weight scale. The red section on the top of the scale indicates your maximum tongue weight (1,700 lbs). The red section on the bottom of the scale indicates no tongue weight (0 lbs). A tongue weight of at least 1,200 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.

Hugh difference pulling my 24ft bumper pull deck over. Ride is much smoother with a lot less energy transfer between truck and trailer.



by:

After using this for 100 miles, I ordered another one for my other truck. Heavy and well built, you might not want to take it on and off frequently. Definitely makes towing more comfortable, not in the cab but for the trailer and its' cargo, too. I highly recommend this for anyone pulling a trailer.



by:

I love this heavy duty--emphasis on HEAVY--hitch! I barely felt my trailer on my truck while driving it was so smooth! The only drawback is how heavy it is... It is a bit of a feat for me to lift and insert then remove this hitch at the end of a race weekend--but I feel it is well worth it!



by:

Heavy duty hitch for sure, can’t wait to start using it. Customer service was excellent, very fast shipping.



by:

The hitch works great and helps to smooth out the ride when towing heavy loads.

I dont regret buying it at all. I can definitely tell the difference between the Gen Y hitch and a typical trailer hitch when towing heavy loads.

Product and service was outstanding

Thanks

I just received the hitch and installed it but have not had a chance to pull with it. It appears to be very well made and is a heavy hitch at 118lbs. I have a 45ft coach and pull a 16k stacker trailer so will see how it does. Will update in a couple of weeks.



by:

I pull a 22k stacker trailer with about 3000lb of tongue weight with a class A pusher with a custom receiver hitch that I had built for it. Decided to try the gen y after talking with someone else who swore by it. After driving cross country I can say it improved the ride quality dramatically. Worth every penny



by:

This hitch is amazing!!! Be prepared though it is very heavy! I love how easy it is to adjust to different heights and ball sizes with the 2 common sizes provided. The scale on the back can be helpful to let you know if you have the proper trailer weight. The more you use it the more you will like it!



by:

Love the height adjustment for all 3 of my trailers suuper solid, I get compliments all the time when people see it "wow that things stout!" Keeps the trailer tongue from excessive bobbing, the pins it came with are a huge improvement from the standard Bobby pin style I was used to. Over all I do not regret a dollar spent and would highly recommend to anyone looking for an initial purchase or upgrade their tow life



by:

THis is our second Boss hitch they are wonderful and function just as designed to smooth out the impacts between the truck and rig. Had a slight issue with the first delivery but E-Trailer replaced it no questions asked and two days later the new one showed up and the UPS driver took away the first. Great customer service which is very rare these dasys.



by:

It was well packaged shipping was great received it within a week installation was easy weighing only 73 pounds. It does affect the center back up sensors on a 2022 , 3500 long bed ram pick up.



by:

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.



by:

Having the built in tongue weight indicator is a true benefit. The torsion movement of the receiver absorbs harsh hi-way road conditions.
I had no problems pulling 10,000 plus miles, with trailers weighting #8,000 to #1000. Would highly recommend this receiver.



by:

Perfect, my second GenY Torsion hitch. Upgrading to the 21K from the 16K. There's not even a close second.



by:

Fantastic heavy duty hitch.



by:

Best hitch iv come across makes a world of a difference



by:

I've several trips lately that involved towing, used a friend of mine's 21K torsion and loved it so, I bought my own. Mine is a 16K but plenty of beef for what I tow. Thank you again, made in America and was delivered extremely quick. Best product I've ever seen for towing especially bumper pull. I'm telling all my friends who have trucks and bumper pull.



by:

Great hitch, I have worked it pretty hard, and had no issues so far.



by:

Haven't used it yet, but it sure looks very promising for my 21000lb trailer.
Like the fact that it's torsion, has weight reader (safe or unsafe) and it also extends my trailer far enough from tailgate to where it doesn't hit it.



by:

Upgraded to the gen y torsion from my stander gen y adjusted one smother riding



by:

Extremely heavy duty.



by:

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.

  • Will Road Shock Still Be Absorbed Using Gen-Y Torsion Ball Mount 325-GH-1124 W/ 7000lb Trailer?
    You are dead on. Using the Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2-1/2" Hitch - 5" Drop/Rise - 16K # 325-GH-1124 will be perfect for your 16000lb trailer, but on your trailer weighing 7000lbs will just not absorb as much road shock. This is due to the stiffness of the torsion flex tubes in the hitch, and the 7000lb under 50% of the max rating of the hitch. I included a video of the # 325-GH-1124 for you to take a look at.

  • How Would Gen-Y Horizontal Torsion Clevis and Pintle Hook Combo Connect to Pintle Setup
    To use the Gen-Y Horizontal Torsion Clevis and Pintle Hook Combo w/ 2-5/16" Ball # 325-GH-1124 in a pintle setup would require you to pull the ball up through the top of the clevis opening and then put the loop between the clevis and secure the ball back down through the loop. Essentially you'd be connecting the clevis to the pintle loop.

  • Can Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers Be Used With Weight Distribution
    Gen-Y doesn't recommend using one of their stacked receiver ball mounts like # 325-GH-1124 for a weight distribution system, because you'll get some movement between the weight distribution shank and the receiver provided by the # 325-GH-1124. Doing so would allow for more banging and movement which will defeat the purpose of using a torsion ball mount, to a degree. You'd be better off using one of their products that's been specifically designed to work with weight distribution, like...

  • Cushioned Shank for Blue Ox Weight Distribution System
    Yes, Gen-Y does make weight distribution shanks that are cushioned and compatible with the heads of Blue Ox Weight Distribution systems like what you have. For that theres the # 325-GH-1302 for a 2-1/2 inch hitch that can provide up to 7 inches of drop. Or for a 2 inch hitch there's the part # 325-GH-1202.

  • Why Doesn't the Gen-Y Torsion Ball Mount Have Set Screws To Secure Ball and Pintle Latch?
    The Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2-1/2" Hitch - 6" Drop/Rise - 32K # GY79FR is not an older model. It is a newer model that has the rounded portion that is like a ramp on the ball mount to help with the lunette ring where the older models didn't have that. There are some models that have the additional threaded holes you referenced but not all of them have that option.

  • Recommended Gen-Y Hitch for 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 and Trailer with DO45 Coupling
    It looks like the pin part of the DO45 (which takes the place of a standard hitch ball) has a shank with a 1-1/4" diameter so I recommend using the Curt Heavy Duty Forged Ball Mount # C45340 with a Gen-Y hitch as this ball mount has up to a 17K towing capacity. For the Gen-Y hitch it all depends on the height of the trailer and if your 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 is stock height or not. If your Chevy is stock height then you should be just fine with the Gen-Y Shank # 325-GH-303 which gives...

  • Comparing Gen-Y Torsion Cushioned Ball Mount and Curt Rebellion XD
    The Curt Rebellion XD like part # C45949-2516 and the Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount # 325-GH-1124 are the two most advanced cushioned ball mounts. As far as cushioning goes the Gen-Y is the winner as it has a design that allows for more cushioning movement and from our experience works so well it actually improves fuel mileage. Now the Curt Rebellion is a really solid option and does a great job but it won't cushion quite as much. It does have a weight advantage though as it weighs 44 lbs...

  • Hitch Extension For a 2021 Ram 2500 For 2-1/2" Receiver Pulling a 16' V-Nose Trailer
    Currently we go from a 7" Extension/Reducer # e53YR that fits your 2-1/2" receiver to a 24" Extension/Reducer # RP45292. Both of these will reduce the receiver from a 2-1/2" receiver to a 2" receiver. You may consider a Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount # 325-GH-1124 as it will also help to cushion your ride. The hitch is 16-3/4" long from the rear receiver to the center of the ball mount.
