Extreme Terrain should correct the info on their website, 1.75" vs. 2" represents a significant difference in tube strength. Makes me wonder if the wall thickness that is listed is correct.

Yes, it will be harder to open and close. I think mine has loosened a bit over the years, but it's still not like stock. I actually think it's a good thing, it won't swing open quite as easily on...
