Smile Better front axles for turning in 4X4

Has anyone replaced the front axles ( u joints and shaft ) to improve the turning radius of the truck when the truck is in 4 wheel drive? I was thinking that there might be a heavy duty CV axle instead of the U joint axle after market kit available.

Cheers

I doubt a CV joint would fit. You may find some after market shafts that allow a tighter turn, but I'm sure the cost would hinder most from even thinking about it. Maybe you'll invent something and make millions?

Are " high angle " axle joints common for a stock truck ?

If you want to turn tighter, put in a rear steer axle
