Does the Jeep lean way over on turns just like if it were being driven on the road = weight transfer? I should have a good amount of flex when I am done but with 38" tires full size axles and fitting in a standard garage with about 6" of clearence I should never be top heavy I personally have never had good things to say about chains. They are to "harsh" Straps, if taken care of will last a long time and take some of the jerk out of it. I also don't like the "have to go to the next chain link" when you only need 1/2 or 1/4 of a link.:dunie:
Straps if you take care of them thats the key .At work we go throuh straps alot tieing machinery down ,scares me when I here wraping around the axel.

Chains :you dont need a big log chain to tie down a rig ,get your chains the right length and you are done, hookem tighten gone .

And yes you will get the same sway or really close on a trailer .I Followed a guy from the Bad Lands and he had his sway bars dis. and the thing was all over the place .
