  1. Carl

    Awesome products

  2. carlos villagomez

    this hitch is AWESOME!!!!…..huge difference in ride. air bags and torsion hitch is the only to go if you have a big trailer…wish i would have gotten this years ago when i first seen it. thanks again Gen-Y your hitch rocks and the bumpers stickers are pretty awesome too

  3. Rob Hoffman

    Allows us to use our existing WD hitch set-up and the ride is far better than before. Highly recommended!!

  4. Jerry

    Super product! This thing is a BEAST! Immediately noticed a much smoother ride. Easy transfer of my Weight Distribution hitch head with no adjustments needed. I was considering a competitive product which uses an airbag but much more $$$$. Outstanding customer support/knowledge coupled with a superior product led me to purchase the Gen-Y BOSS (Torsion-Flex). Only regret….. I did not make the purchase sooner. Performs as advertised. Well done.

    This hitch is beefy beyond all beef. I don’t think there is another beefier hitch out there on the market than this hitch.
    If some people think that the price is beyond reasonable, you better think about what is the value of what you are towing. If you’re not towing anything like a racecar trailer than you’re probably not towing anything of value or important to you, than this hitch may not be what you need. However, Gen-Y does have other hitches for the light and inexpensive stuff.

  6. Christian Braithwaite (verified owner)

    I’ve rarely been as satisfied with a purchase in my entire life. This hitch is incredibly stout, and works mind-blowingly well.

    I was totally surprised just how effective the torsion-flex system was at isolating the truck/trailer movement. I felt very little of the trailer movement – even on big bumps.

    I can’t recommend this product enough – best hitch I’ve ever owned hands down.

  7. Tony (verified owner)

    OMG I want to tow my trailer just so I can flex my new hitch on people who don’t have one!

    • Ashley Griffee

      That’s great, Tony! We love seeing our customers excited about our products!

  8. Keith (verified owner)

    For the person like me that feels the hitch is too expensive. It is worth every penny and you will tell the difference within 5 miles. I will never own another hitch.

    • Ashley Griffee

      Keith, thank you for this honest feedback! We appreciate you taking the time to leave this positive review!

  9. Paul L (verified owner)

    Using between an F350 and 10k gvwr travel trailer with weight distribution. If there was any shock between truck & trailer, there isn’t anymore. Works as advertised. No noticeable reduction in towing or backing performance.

    • Ashley Griffee

      Thank you for your positive feedback, Paul! We are so glad to hear that your BOSS has improved your ride quality!

  10. JAC (verified owner)

    Had purchased a used 6” drop Boss Torsion Flex hitch with weight distribution. Loved it! Purchased a new tow vehicle requiring the a longer drop. Told my wife I am not towing a camper unless we purchase the new hitch. Takes the jostling out that you feel while towing and makes the ride feel smooth and safe. Highly recommend. Worth the cost.

    • Ashley Styers

      This is what we love to hear! Thank you for sharing the positive experience you’ve had towing with our BOSS!
