MSN (I know not the best auto info source) has the Xterra's turning radius listed as 37.6 ft and the Frontier's at 44.3 ft.

Is this due to the shorter wheelbase or does the Xterra have a different steering setup.

If so can the (2wd) front ends be swapped to improve turning on the frontier.

You just get used to it as it is what it is.

A Frontier CC LWB is probably 60ft turning radius. I was in downtown Portland last week and had to park in an underground parking garage man it was a site I had to back up here and there just to make some of the turns in the garage, it took me a while to find a spot I could actually make it into.

Crap like that is why I live in the sticks.... always a place to park!

Actually, there is a decimal error in their data. The CC LB turning radius is 443.0 ft.

A Tswap increases with width by 6" (3" on each side) so the wheels do stick out a bit. If you go offroad then maybe but if you are on the road, it sticks out a bit too much for my likings, thus why I havn't done it. If you added fender flares thou, it may work but at a high cost in parts.
