“Hands down the highest quality hitch on the market! American made, best ride quality, adjustability, & just plain safe! Thanks GEN-Y!”


The possibilities are endless with the GEN-Y Mega-Duty adjustable hitch. Not only is our product convenient for customers towing with multiple applications, but also heavy-duty and built to last a lifetime. Our products are designed to improve the ride for customers, ranging anywhere from RVers and off-roaders to serious outdoorsmen. Therefore, the MEGA-DUTY is a great choice for any towing needs.  In addition to towing, our product can be used for other applications such as any standard luggage rack, motorcycle carrier, cargo rack, etc. Another feature that sets the MEGA-DUTY apart from other hitches is the adjustability. The desired height of the attachments is adjusted by simply pulling a pin and moving the ball mount to that position. The hookup is simple and fast and also ensures that the trailer is being towed as level as possible. Our products are designed and tested to be used in the drop or rise position, which provides even more versatility.  The GEN-Y Mega-Duty gets the job done faster and can be adapted to almost any bumper style trailer and pintle style couplings.

Got a Lift? No Problem

However, there are a few things to consider when towing with a lifted vehicle. First, a long drop hitch (12″ or more) will put added leverage on the vehicle receiver. In some cases, receiver hitch manufactures will then reduce ratings by as much as 50%. Secondly, a long drop hitch will 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 therefore taking the stress off of the receiver. The GH-0100 also prevents the bottom of the ball mount from moving, ensuring a safe towing experience.

All GEN-Y products are rigorously tested and exceed the SAE-J684 Weight Testing Requirements. Never exceed recommended capacity on any trailer tow coupling or vehicle receiver hitch. Patents protecting the GEN-Y Mega-Duty 21K adjustable drop hitch include #(s)   USD697838S1, USD682751S1, USD683279S1USD797008S1.

How Does the GEN-Y Pintle System Function?

The GEN-Y 21K Mega-Duty uses the standard GH-061 2.5″ Versa-Ball in addition to the GH-062 pintle lock to quickly and safely connect to pintle couplings. By simply pulling the pin in the pintle lock and sliding it back into the adjustable section of the hitch,  the pintle ring can then be lowered down over the 2 5/16″ side of the Versa-Ball. The last step is to then slide the pintle lock back out across the pintle ring and pin it in place securely.

  1. Carl

    Very versatile, well worth the money!

  2. Mason

    Worth every dollar! Never have to worry about having the right hitch! Just jump in and go. Great for work trucks that need a pintle and a ball! Always have the right hitch for the job. Would recommend to anyone using multiple hitch types.

    Hands down the best hitch on the market!! I have used every type of special drop hitches for my lifted trucks over the years and was just never fully happy with them. Once i saw these i had to give them a shot and have never looked back since then. I have them on every now, including my lifted SXS. A+++++

  4. Robert

    The strongest hitch available on the market. I have one and buying another one for my son.

    It’s a no worry hitch – hook up with confidence and go.

    Hitch did not fit in reciever without modification. Not overly impressed considering the hitch, anti rattle device and lock was $500 and required a grinder for install. I’ve had 3 hitches now this truck and this is the first that had to be wire wheeled to remove the paint so it would fit. I ordered the anti rattle device which I obviously didn’t need due to fitment issues. I tried to make the anti rattle device fit after the wire wheeling and it still won’t wedge into the receiver. I had recieved the hitch just in time for a trip and had no other options to tow heavy so I made it fit. If I would have had a spare I would have sent the hitch back to gen y. On a good note it is a very heavy duty hitch that looks like it will hold up long term provided it doesn’t rust away now due to lack of paint where it plugs into the trucks receiver.
    Gen y feel free to contact me.

    The hitch is great and heavy duty but had to grind all the paint off the shaft to make it fit in my 2 1/2 receiver. Need to down size the shaft to make room for the paint

    Guys, KEEP ON DOING WHAT EVER IT IS THAT YOU’VE BEEN DOING… I’m fairly new to the bumper pulling game and since I purchased the perfect baby rig (2019 RAM 3500 Mega Cab Dually) to haul pintle hitch generators and other type of pintle hitch loads I decided to go on out and spend the extra $300.00 or so to get me something that I somehow had a feeling would last for a hell of a long time and at the same time compliment the look of my truck at the same time. I get asked by quite a few fellers out here where it is that I snatched this 9” drop 21K hitch and I guide them straight to your site. I’m completely satisfied. Not sure if these things come with a Gen-Y sticker (mine didn’t) but if they do, send me a couple on over and I’ll be more than glad to slap them on the baby rig. Appreciate such a great product, keep on doing what you’re doing, it’s obviously working out, thanks a ton!! 🙌🏼

    Great quality hitch! Very quick delivery. Was recommended by a fleet supply store and this hitch did not disappoint.

    I have an 11” lifted Ram 2500 Diesel on 40’s. I needed a heavy duty drop hitch (15” drop) that was top notch quality. I got exactly that with this hitch. It was packaged very well, it was definitely heavy duty, and with the stabilizer kit, this hitch set up was exactly what I was looking for.

  10. Michael Ortega

    This hitch is the real deal, NO BS HERE. Like their other hitch products, VERY WELL BUILT and excellent craftsmanship., it also leaves spots for other accessories, if needed, which makes it very versatile. Customer service is exactly like the hitch, AWESOME! This is for serious truck owners that need a strong and dependable drop hitch. The price reflects the quality and in my opinion is more than fair. As with any good tool, If you take care of this it will take care of you, for a long, long time.
    P.S Make sure that you can lift 60lbs, because when it arrives with everything in the box that is how much it weights….yeah its NO JOKE!

    I ordered the 21k drop hitch with 5 positions and when I received the product I realized I messed the measurements. I contacted Gen Y and spoke to Ashley Griffee. She helped me get my hitch swapped out for the right drop and the process went flawlessly. Customer support is remarkable!! I can’t thank them enough! Now for the hitch. The fit and finish is nothing less then perfect! If you have a lifted truck then Gen Y is the way to go from products to customer service!! Highly recommend Gen Y for all towing products.
