How does the GEN-Y pintle hitch work?

The original quick adjust GEN-Y pintle hitch system uses the standard GH-061 2.5″ Versa-Ball in addition to the GH-062 pintle lock to quickly and safely connect to any size or height pintle coupling. By simply pulling the pin in the pintle lock and sliding it back into the adjustable GEN-Y hitch system, the lunette eye (pintle ring) of the pintle trailer can then be lowered down over the 2 5/16″ side of the Versa-Ball. The last step is to slide the pintle lock back out across the lunette eye and pin it in place securely.

Does Your Truck Have a Lift Kit

Got a lift, no problem! However, there are a few things to think about when towing with a lifted vehicle. First of all, a long drop hitch (12″ or more) will put added leverage on the vehicle receiver. Therefore, in some cases, receiver hitch manufactures will actually reduce hitch ratings on the tow vehicle by as much as 50%. Secondly,  a long drop hitch will typically create 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 stress off of the receiver as well as keeping the bottom of the ball mount to move, ensuring a safe towing experience.

Offset Drop Hitches

The offset drop hitches are even more versatile. The different offset drop hitches inlude the 6″ Offset Drop Hitch which raises the hitch 3″ and lowers it 6″ and the 12″ Offset Drop Hitch which raises it 3″ and lowers it 12″. Offset hitches allow for raised and lowered positions at the same time, giving more options for any dual purpose jobs. For example, pulling a car dolly and attaching a bike rack or using tow bars and a luggage rack at the same time. This means a much easier and safer way of getting multiple applications connected to 2.5″ receievers.  2.5″ drop hitches are compatible with GH-602 Weight Distribution Systems.

    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+++++
