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.

Video Transcript for Review of Gen-Y Hitch Trailer Hitch Ball Mount - Adjustable 2 Ball Mount - 325-GH-1724

Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a look at this Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount with the pintle lock, has a nine inch drop or rise, and it's for a three inch hitch, has a 32,000 pound gross towing weight capacity. Now, this is an adjustable ball mount, this will let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank right here is what'll slide into your three inch hitch receiver on your vehicle, and then upfront here, you have either a 2 5/16 diameter ball or a two inch diameter ball, which will provide the connection points for your trailer coupler. If you noticed on this one, it also includes this pintle lock accessory. When this is paired with the larger 2 5/16 ball, it'll provide a connection point for a lunette ring coupler.

And just to demonstrate what happens on the lunette ring, on some of your large trailers, they'll have a large ring on the front and it's a lunette ring, it's designed to drop over the ball. So what you'll do is pop open, take off this pin and clip, push the pintle lock back out of the way, and then you'll make your connection to your lunette ring, so you'll drop your lunette ring over the ball, and to keep it attached to the ball so it doesn't unhook, that's where you slide this pintle lock up over that, and then your lunette ring will stay underneath there, and then you'll secure it in place with the pin and the clip, and that'll hold that lunette ring in place. If you're not gonna use it with the lunette ring coupler, you can actually just slide this back out of the way, and there's a second pin that you can slide that through, and it'll hold it in the closed position if you're not using it. Now, if you noticed on this, it has four stacked 2 1/2 inch receiver openings, it'll accept the included ball mount and pintle lock as well as other hitch-mounted accessories. It does have the two 3/4 inch diameter stainless steel pins and clips, and that's to secure the ball mount to the shank and the pintle lock to the shank.

And what's nice is on the clips, they use a twist lock design, which I really like, makes it very easy to remove and install your clips. All you do is twist it, and as you twist the clip, it'll just pop right out just like that, and you'll do the same on the bottom, just like that, and then you can remove your pin, you can remove your pintle lock if you want. What I wanna do is just show you how we're gonna remove this one from a ball mount, and this has got the 2 5/16 up. Now, if you wanna flip it over to the two inch, all you have to do is slide this ball mount out, rotate it just like that, and slide it right back into place. Now, I'm putting it back in the same hole, but you have this whole range that you can put the ball mount up or down.

The adjustable height will let you tow trailers of different heights with the same vehicle, works well if you have a lifted truck. So as I mentioned, you can move this ball mount higher or lower to match your application. If you put it in the lowest position, it'll get you a maximum drop of nine inches, if you install the shank, reverse it into the rise position, and then put this ball mount in the highest point, it'll get you a maximum rise of nine inches. So we're just gonna slip the two inch application back in place, put the pin through there. And again, with this push clip, you just push it, it'll twist right onto place, you don't have to force it.

Just like that, you're all ready to go. Now, this is a nice heavy-duty steel construction, they do use a nice zinc primer and then they coat it with a durable silver vein epoxy powder coat to resist corrosion. Now, when you do install this into your three inch hitch receiver, it will require a hitch pin and clip or a hitch lock for securing it to your hitch receiver, those items we do sell separately in our website. They do offer two hitch pin hole diameters, the smaller one is a 5/8 inch, the large one is a 3/4 inch diameter. This is SAE J684 certified, it is made in the USA. Again, the application, this will fit a three inch by three inch trailer hitch receiver opening. Now, the weight capacities will just depend on the ball size you use, so if you use the smallest two inch ball diameter, you'll have a gross towing weight capacity of 16,000 pounds, maximum tongue weight of 1,500 pounds. If you flip it over and use the larger 2 5/16 diameter ball, you'll have a gross towing weight capacity of 32,000 pounds, maximum tongue weight of 3,500 pounds. Now, this ball mount does have many different dimensions, so what I do recommend for you to do is go to the product page of this part number, we have a picture of all this part with all the dimensions on it, so they'll let you verify any dimensions that you maybe needing for your application. But that should do it for the review on this Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount with the pintle lock, has a nine inch drop or rise, and it's for a three inch hitch..

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


Great product. Always the best. This is the 3rd one we have purchased for our heavy trucks. My hitch came all scratched and banged up from poor shipping. Not a positive for a $xxx hitch. Will be looking for a different distributer than etrailer in the future for these products. Great product, 5/5, however etrailer did no favors on this product.


Comments
I see that your hitch has received some scratches on it due to shipping. This does tend to happen and when it does, we recommend using a Rust-oleum type paint to cover up any scratches and prevent corrosion in the future during use. I have a link below for your reference.

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


Great product. Very stout, but also very heavy. Only complaint is the weight, particularly because I am not a full time trailer “tower” so I install/remove frequently. Definitely peace of mind in terms of not having to worry about ball mount issues with 2500#+ tongue weight.

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


The hitch is great except for one problem. The ramp in front of the 2 5/16 ball that is for a pintle hitch is cracking at the weld.

This hitch has been used with both balls in every height position. Hitch is durable and high quality. It has not been off my truck since I purchased it and is used frequently to tow 10-20K trailers.

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


Been towing with this hitch for a year now. It’s the best hitch I’ve ever owned. The longest I’ve ever kept the same hitch. Easy to switch heights, strength, it’s bulletproof. I’ve dropped a loaded dump trailer onto the ball after not getting it lined up correctly. The weight would have bent any other hitch. This Gen-Y laughed at it.

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


This review is for the install only, as i have not towed with the hitch yet...
Well, getting the hitch into the receiver was a major pain in the rear. So much powder coating made it very difficult to insert. I hade to use a 5000lbs tie down ratchet, and it took about 45 minutes to complete the task. Not happy with that portion at all.

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


I have been pulling this trailer daily for 19 years. Have been through a few hitches in that time. They all seem to bend over time. This one has just been installed and I must say it is the best quality heavy duty hitch I have ever purchased. Can't wait to pull with it...

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


Sturdy, well built. But it rusts!! All that money and it rusted within months. I’ve had a B&W for 10+ years and it’s as shiny as the first day.
