Im running without a front, but I would NOT reccomend taking of your rear it makes your jeep highly unstable, the rear sway bar doesnt limit your flex.

The rear sway bar is the same diameter as one off a atv

Be very careful without a front sway bar as you have nothing to control the sway now. Its best to run one on road at least. The stock front is really limiting though so its common to disconnect it when off road. If you want to have the advantage of a sway bar off road while not being limited you can get a lighter rate sway bar like the Currie Antirock.

I beg to differ as long as you have the rear connected you will be fine. I havent noticed much of a difference in handling but I've noticed a big difference in ride quality

You may not notice it, but you no longer have a torsion bar system working since you removed it. It's not necessarily unsafe, but if you remove something it doesn't work anymore. The front and rear are supposed to work together to keep the frame level.
