I understand your point, but your claim of 6k# max on 2" ball is not exactly true. Draw Tite lists a 2" ball with 1.25" shank with an 8k rating. If you step up to their interchangable ball setup (1 7/16, 2", 2 5/16") then the rating is 10k#. Other manfacturers list a standard 2" ball with up to 10k ratings. Shank diameter is the main strength determining factor, not ball diameter.
