GenY hitches

I had to order another drop down hitch, the 5 /" I had wasn't low enough for my bumper pull, the front tires barely touched the ground. So I got the genY adjustable hitch. That joker weighs 48 lbs

Does anyone haul with one? Reviews before I scratch it up?

I swapped out the rear spring spacers for spacers from a 2016 F-250 and lowered the rear-end approximately 1.5". This was somewhat less expensive than a GenY hitch. Still able to use my 5-1/2" drop hitch and leveled my truck at the same time. It also made it easier to use the tailgate steps to get into the bed.

Never seen/heard of GenY before but looks like a hardcore setup. I use bulletproof hitches. I like the adjustable version they have, which did you get?

I like that lock pin I've been reading about in other threads. Where do you find those?

Dang, those GenY hitches look awesome! Thanks for intoducing them! I'm really interested in the torsion bar version, especially the version you can use with an existing sway bar setup. It seems like it would get rid of any bounce but I sure would love to get some reviews before I drop $650 on it.
