Recommended Gen-Y Torsion Ball Mount for 2017 Ram 3500 Towing Daily


I tow a trailer daily. Its 24x102 and has two 7k axles and weighs 4,000 lbs empty. I load it with between 4,000lbs to 10,000lbs daily. Which Gen Y Torsion hitch would be the best option for me? I drive a 2017 Ram 3500.

For your 2017 Ram 3500, I recommend the Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount - 5" Drop/Rise # 325-GH-1224 or the 7-1/2" Drop/rise # 325-GH-1225 depending on the height of your trailer in regards to your trailer hitch receiver. Both are rated for up to 16,000 lbs towing and tongue weights up to 1,700 lbs. These 2 inch stacked receivers are very durable and well made for even commercial grade level applications.

If you have a 2-1/2 inch hitch receiver, then I recommend the 6" Drop/Rise # 325-GH-1324 or the 9" Drop/Rise # 325-GH-1325. These 2-1/2 inch ball mounts are rated for 21,000 lbs towing and tongue weights up to 2,400 lbs.

These torsion ball mounts can be used with weight distribution systems but that will give you two moving parts which I don't recommend.
