My 1 1/4" started breaking from ATV wagon on rocky trails so I cut it off and stuck a 1 1/4"-2" adapter into square hole that was left, welded it with gussets, Rock solid now.

Thatís exactly what I been eyeballing. Let me ask this what could you do if your wanting to put a tiger tail on? You have to take that off every time to hitch up

Again its what works for my individual needs. Yours may be different!
