About This Product

The Gen Y Mega Duty 16k Drop Hitch is a fully adjustable hitch perfect for customers towing with multiple applications. The Mega Duty Hitch is designed with safety in mind and can be utilized by boaters, off-roaders, and any serious outdoorsmen. Furthermore, this hitch can be used for other applications including any bicycle rack, cargo rack, motorcycle carrier, etc.

The Mega Duty Drop Hitch stands apart from its competition due to its adjustability. You can easily adjust the height of the attachment by removing the pin and moving the ball mount to the desired height. For even greater adjustability, you can pair the Mega Duty Hitch with Gen Y’s Weight Distribution Shank. This hitch makes towing a breeze as it’s fast and easy to use, and it also ensures that the trailer is being towed as level as possible. 

This hitch is designed and tested for use in the drop or rise position, providing even greater versatility. Capable of being adapted to almost any bumper style trailer and pintle style couplings, this hitch is a great option for those looking for the best way to tow!

Does Your Truck Have a Lift Kit?

Got a lift, no problem! Even if you have a lift kit, this hitch can still be of use! However, there are a few things to think about when towing with a lifted vehicle. 

Long drop hitches (12″ or more) will put additional leverage on the vehicle receiver. Therefore, in some cases, receiver hitch manufacturers will reduce ratings by as much as 50%. 

A long drop hitch will also typically create a lot more movement due to the added length and drop of the ball mount. Using the Stabilizer Kit (GH-0100) will tie the bottom of the GEN-Y adjustable drop hitch into the frame of the truck which will take the stress off of the receiver as well as keeping the bottom of the ball mount from moving, ensuring a safe towing experience.

  1. Carl

    Best hitch I ever owned!

  2. Adam

    Worth Every Penny. So maybe you can go to your box store get something cheaper but I know from experience that they don’t hold up as well. Have had mine for well over 4 years and have put well over the 16k rated weight to it without any issues. Besides some paint flaking off hope to get many more years of use.

  3. Mark

    Own 3 of these for our work trucks which are pretty much married to trailers. Enough said.

  4. James Roach (verified owner)

    Very simple, this is the best hitch on the market. It isn’t even close

  5. Ben Stayskal (verified owner)

    I rarely leave reviews, but I definitely want people to know this hitch is fantastic! The company is awesome as well, quick response to questions and friendly staff.
    I used their diagrams and measurement suggestions to pick the right hitch, and it was dead on. I’ve towed everything from small trailers that haul motorcycles, to 4,000lb dump trailers loaded with 10,000lb tree trunks.
    The bolt hitch locks that code to your truck key are a life saver as well. They really do work. Awesome product and experience all around.

  6. G.W. Ringer

    I run a Landscape business. We pull big trailers every single day. By far the best quality and most versatile hitch I’ve ever owned. Been running 1 for almost a year now and just received my 2nd one today. We have 7 trailers varying in size and tongue heights. Easy adjustment and tough as nails durability is a must in this business! Great product!!!

    In preparing one of my trucks [’94 Dodge Ram 2500 – 9″ lift on 38″ boots] to be my primary hauler, I removed the original factory receiver hitch and installed a 17,000lb XD receiver and paired it with a 2″ shank, 10″ drop 16,000lb Gen-Y with all the fixin’s. I gotta hand it to these guys at Gen-Y!! This hitch is the absolute BEST drop hitch I’ve EVER had the pleasure of putting my hands on [and I’ve used A LOT. like waaayy too many junk hitches…]. I checked it against every trailer I have and there is a position to match all of them perfectly. It’s just fantastic. And on top of that, now I have one hitch that stays locked into the receiver and I freed up one of my underbody toolboxes that until now, was filled with multiple drop and pintle hitches. Won’t buy anything but Gen-Y now. I should have done this year’s ago.. Aside from the products, Gen-Y also has an AMAZING customer service team. I’d like to point out one in particular for this review. **Aaron** at Gen-Y is an AWESOME dude. I had some questions and thoughts and needed help modifying my order and man I’ll tell you what… **Aaron** politely and 100% confidently answered, explained and resolved every question I had, gave me all of the information necessary, and also helped me modify my order flawlessly. And what was even better is that not only did he figure all of my stuff out, he actually kept in touch throughout the days and made sure to call me back when he figured things out. That is top notch customer service and these guys are a dying breed. All in all, Gen-Y in my opinion is the best, well only hitch in existence now.. lol if you have read this far, thank you. I wanted to make sure that I got my point across fully and clearly!! Aaron @ Gen-Y!! Thank you brother!!!

    • Ashley Styers

      We appreciate it, Wayne! We’re glad to hear you love your beast of a hitch!

  12. Enrique Moctezuma (verified owner)

    Great when you have to adjust your hitch height. Makes the process much easier.

  13. FTB Customs (verified owner)

    Once again GenY Killed it with our order!! We build massive giveaway trucks and we only use the best parts in the industry for them. That’s why we have used GENY since the very beginning on not just our giveaway trucks and Sema builds but also our personal trucks. You can find a hitch at your local Wal-Mart or AutoZone, but you won’t come close to the quality, the warranty, the workmanship or the options. Guarantee that.

    • Ashley Styers

      We really appreciate your honest & kind words, James! We love hearing how much our customers love their GEN-Y Hitches!
