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.
