Flat tow a 48

I'm getting ready to tow my 48 CJ2A. I ran it around the block and on my first turn the wheels went the wrong way... The other 3 turns were fine. So now I'm nervous about the highway.

I've been reading about caster angle possibley causing a problem. Should I drag this thing in for an alignment. Might that help?

I have power steering, 4" lift, and 35" tires. Driving this in the city is a white knuckle experience. The jeep does wander, but I added 2.5* shims that seem to make a diff.

Took the jeep for another run today.. from what I can see, the front steering isn't moving at all. Seems that I'm pulling the tires across the turn rather than through it. There gears are all open too.

Any suggestions?
