Question about turn radius
Am looking at a 73 CJ5 right now. It has 36 x 12.5 super swamper tires on it, along with plenty of lift for them. When test driving it, ran into turn radius problems (short turn radius and rubbing).
After looking at things closer, the tires are catching on the leaf springs (could see the rub marks on the springs).
My question is, is there a way to get around this?
Could one put deep rims on and gain a better turn radius, or at least help against rubbing?
Can one get wider axles without tons of hassle?
Other options that could help with this?
Very cool Jeep, that is for sure :-) Was debating on beefing up my current 85 CJ7, or getting on that is already done. My CJ7 has an excellent turn radius, but only has 31" tires.
Thanks for any information!
