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..

Great production quality and super fast delivery from etrailer!



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 prices, great service and excellent staff.



by:

The hitch is everything I wanted and couldn’t be more pleased how it performs! The only complaint I have is when I received the hitch is that the powder coat was chipped away in two spots and down to the bare metal. I contact etrailer and was told by one of there customer service reps that it’s a common occurrence and normal to receive a hitch with scuff and chips because of the way it’s stored in the warehouse, I just hope they can improve on this on the future. The product works awesome and I couldn’t be happier for how it looks and performs on towing the many different trailers I have!



by:

Super heavy duty! BUT, there is a little play in the ball attachment and receiver that slides back and forth? Really doesn’t sound good when pulling my 14,800lb boat! Makes you feel a little uneasy!



by:

Free shipping and the product arrived in two days! Excellent customer service and a very heavy duty hitch.



by:

Excellent Service as always. I ordered with two day shipping and even in the midst of what is happing in the world I received it on time. Product has exceeded my expectation.

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.

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:

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.

  • Can SuperTruss be Used With Gen-Y 2-Ball Mount
    A SuperTruss extension cannot be used with the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # 325-GH-513, it can only be used with the SuperHitch receiver. If you let me know your year/make/model of truck I can find the right SuperHitch for you.

  • Recommended Adapter With 500 Pound Capacity for Additional Clearance Carrying Mobility Scooter
    In order to mount your carrier and mobility scooter on your trailer hitch I recommend using the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers # 325-GH-513. This fits a 2" receiver and gives you 2" stacked receivers for multiple height options. It has a maximum 5" rise/drop and a tongue weight capacity of 1,500 lbs which will be more than enough for your needs. I have attached some video reviews as well as a link to all of our Gen-Y ball stacked receivers if you need a different rise/drop....

  • Recommended Way To Extend Weight Distribution Hitch So That Tailgate Clears Trailer Tongue Jack
    I recommend swapping out the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution Shank # BXW4002 for a Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank # EQ90-02-4600. The Equal-i-zer shank is 5" longer giving you enough to clear your tailgate. With using with a weight distribution hitch the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers # 325-GH-513 would create another point where there is going to be play in the receiver tube. While this will extend your hitch out it is not the route I would recommend going.
