I think I would swap hitches to a 2" instead of hitch balls to 1 7/8. I wouldn't want anything 1 7/8" around. Just one less thing to hassle with.
Believe me I wanted to but the current one on the trailer is welded to the tongue so it's a lot easier just to swap balls. OR, I can pony up a few hundred bucks and buy a nice, newer drop down adjustable hitch with the 2 different size balls already installed, but why spend that kinda money when I already have a drop hitch.... That's my thought process anyway
