Back in my stockish Tracker days I ran 31's, lock-right rear and open front and still managed to twist 3 rear axles. Your right at your limit for tire size as the axles would be the weak link in the whole system. The factory sway bar doesn't adversly affect your articulation enough to remove it. I tried it both ways and just left mine on.

Dear Travelers,
You won't see London and you won't see France, until we see your underpants!
