Ya just can't change 'em all! I would still need at least 4 drawbars for my Ranger to get the right tow height for a variety of trailers... not to mention the rare occassion I need a 2-5/16" ball.
Then there's the Escape... so maybe one more.
Of course I guess I could just buy one of these... It even has a 2" and a 1-7/8" ball...

Swapping out the shank in my hitch is far easier than changing all of my equipment over to one size.

I have one adjustable height shank with a pintle/2" ball, one regular drop with a 1 7/8" ball, a 2 5/16" insert and one clevis hitch.

It all fits neatly in the small toolbox (Along with a few select tools and spare parts)in the back of my truck(s).

If the hitch were damaged, I would probably replace it with a 2" unless I had something else handy.

depends on you. that hitch will work just fine. if you tow other trailers that have 2 inch ball you may have to switch back and forth

I started this post and it looks like people are wondering what I ended up doing. When I was restoring the trailer and had it to the frame, I brought it in to have another axle installed. While having that done, I had them torch off the existing broke and rusted coupler and install a Bulldog 2" coupler. This has worked out fantastic, as it has a round collar that will only slip up to the front coupler if everything is hooked up correctly. I alway hit the road knowing that the hitch is set up right and can't come loose.
